Sustainable Economy

Canada has the potential to capitalize on the single biggest business opportunity in human history - the shift to a green economy.

Investment in green energy – like wind, solar and hydro – creates over 7x more jobs per dollar invested when compared to investment in traditional energy sectors.

The renewable energy sector in Canada now provides tens of thousands of stable, sustainable, future friendly jobs, and has the potential to employ hundreds of thousands more.
