Jobs across Canada

Canada's oil and natural gas industry creates jobs for Canadians from coast to coast.

Not only do investments in oil and natural gas spur economic growth and provide broad-based prosperity for Canada, they supported and created more than 530,000 direct and indirect jobs across the country in 2017. Prior to the effects of the recent downturn, the industry supported 640,000 jobs (2015). The majority of jobs were in Alberta but more than 60,000 jobs were supported in Ontario, demonstrating how the oil and natural gas sector relies upon and supports other Canadian industries such as manufacturing, technology and transportation to complete and operate energy projects.
