A More Complete Roadmap: Overcoming Obstacles on Canada's Net Zero Journey

About the Event

On Wednesday, June 15th 2022, from 8:30AM to 5PM, the ISSP and Positive Energy will host a conference featuring a variety of speakers and industry representatives to discuss the findings of our latest research. This conference will be held in person at the University of Ottawa and offered virtually.

Canada is at a pivotal moment on energy and climate: there is far greater consensus about the need to reduce emissions, and there are myriad opportunities for Canadian energy of all types in domestic and international markets. Much energy and climate progress has been made, but there is much to be done to move successfully from the ‘what’ to the ‘how’ of emissions reductions.

This conference will highlight key obstacles and challenges Canada needs to address in its emissions reductions efforts. Drawing on Positive Energy’s research and engagement over the last three years, the event will identify concrete actions and solution-focused recommendations in four challenge areas: 

  • Getting infrastructure financed, permitted and built, and technology developed and deployed
  • Ensuring energy is affordable and reliable
  • Building consensus among the public and experts for Canada’s energy and climate future
  • Fostering intergovernmental collaboration and navigating partisan polarization
