Be a part of writing the next chapter in Canada’s energy story.
We are going to be speaking with all Canadians who have an idea or thought to share, including Indigenous peoples, stakeholders and experts.
We are also going to have a discussion with you right here on this space!
Over the next several months, there are many ways that you can join the conversation:
- Submit your thoughts for our future on the Ideas Forum
- Test your energy knowledge with our online Quiz
- Take our current Poll to tell us what you think
- Send us your proposal or research paper(s) to be shared on our website
- Host your own local energy conversation! Document the discussions and send us photos to be shared online.
- Connect with us on social media using #GenEnergy
Need some context?
If you’d like to know more about Canada’s energy systems and the emerging global trends in policy and technology that influence them, download our context paper. This paper, prepared by NRCan energy experts, will provide background on energy use in Canada, the current policy environment, the Generation Energy process, and some key questions to consider as you participate.
October 11 and 12, 2017
RBC Convention Centre
Generation Energy will be held on October 11 and 12, 2017 at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg. We hope that Canadians from coast to coast to coast will join us in Winnipeg or participate virtually through live online events.
Interested in attending? Please click here. There is no cost to participate, but participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.
If interest exceeds available space, every effort will be made to ensure a broad representation of the Canadian public at the event in Winnipeg.
Email confirmations will be sent no later than September 8, 2017.
Keep coming back!
We will be listening to your voices as we develop and post new and exciting content. Everything we hear across the country will come together on this platform. The ideas you submit on this website or to our email will be made publicly available. At the end of this process, we will post a final report that will help inform Canada’s future energy policy and ensure that it will reflect the core values and perspectives of Canadians.
Host your own energy conversation
We want Canadians to have the opportunity to join Generation Energy in articulating a vision for Canada’s energy future. Canadians from coast to coast to coast are sharing their ideas, and bringing their communities together to talk about how we meet our climate change goals while ensuring Canada’s energy sector continues to thrive.
If you’d like to host an event in your community, we’d like to help. Below you’ll find materials to help you plan your Generation Energy discussion.
