Energy poverty is a worldwide challenge, including here in Canada.

Energy Poverty in Canada

Every Canadian should know how energy is produced, transported and used, in Canada and around the world. Helping to address that education challenge is the Energy IQ program, a partnership between Canadian Geographic Education and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP).

Among other resources on the Energy IQ website is a video about energy poverty. More than one billion people worldwide lack access to affordable, reliable energy, and – perhaps surprisingly – that includes up to one in five Canadian households. The Energy IQ program helps us all understand global and Canadian energy, so we can make informed decisions about energy-related issues.
