How many jobs does Canadian oil and natural gas support?

Think the equivalent of the entire population of Steeltown: more than half a million jobs creating livelihoods to support families and communities from coast to coast.

Not only did Canada’s oil and natural gas industry support more than half a million jobs in 2017, it did so in a diverse range of professions, trades and geographies. A growing industry would support even more middle-class Canadian families, while producing energy the world needs the Canadian way: sustainable, responsible and safe.
