Canada's oil sands means jobs in Quebec

Canada's oil sands are located in northern Alberta, but its impact on creating jobs and economic growth is felt by more than 300 Quebec companies.

Canada's oil sands, home to the third largest oil reserves in the world, are located in northern Alberta. However, oil sands producers purchase goods and services from companies all across Canada. For examples, oil sands producers buy from companies in Quebec that supply steel and manufacturing, transportation equipment and environmental consulting. This means real jobs, economic growth and government tax revenues to support prosperity and quality of life.
