Environment, Energy & Forestry
The theme of the annual meeting is “Moving towards a Pan-Canadian Energy Strategy.”
“I look forward to discussions about the need for a national energy strategy,” said Minister Brown. “All Canadians will benefit from a national strategy, especially here in the Atlantic Region. Strengthening the energy sector will provide a reliable source of renewable, affordable power for Atlantic Canadians and create long-term jobs.”
Minister Brown said the meetings provide an opportunity for federal, provincial and territorial governments to set key priorities for the energy sector and establish a plan of action.
