Flipping the Switch: The Outlook for Canada’s Electric Utilities

Canada stands out as one of the world’s largest electricity generators and as a leader in clean electricity generation. But to get to this position, Canadian electric utilities have undergone a dramatic transformation over the past decade. Join Carlos A. Murillo for a discussion of the changes underway for Canada’s electrical utilities and a five-year outlook on the industry. This webinar is based on the newly released Canadian Industrial Outlook for Canada’s Electric Utilities Industry, published in the Summer of 2017, and includes five-year forecasts for the industry’s output, employment, prices, investment levels, trade, and financial performance metrics, among others. Non-hydroelectric renewable sources have been increasingly adopted and generation from fossil fuels are in decline across Canada. Investment by electric utilities has increased by 75 per cent in the past decade, but Canada still need significant levels of investment to build a more modern and cleaner generation fleet. Higher prices are in turn needed to support increasing investment requirements and to help offset the rapid cost increases that have been prevalent across the industry. Industry revenues are expected to increase at about half the pace registered in the past half-decade. Much of that revenue growth is fuelled by higher electricity costs for users, although prices vary by province. To limit price increases, Canada’s electric utilities will need to work hard to limit cost growth between 2017 and 2021. The role of trade in electricity generation is growing. Although close to 90 percent of electricity generated in Canada is used domestically, net exports to the U.S. doubled between 2007 and 2016, while interprovincial flows remained relatively steady.

Going with the Flow: The Fluid State of Crude Oil Pipeline Projects in Canada

In just a few months, the outlook for crude oil export pipelines has changed drastically. With the new Trump administration’s executive order to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, there are now four potential pipelines that could be built across Canada in the years to come. But, are all these projects needed? What are the implications for Canada’s energy sector over the long-term? What are the potential economic impacts of these projects? And, what other issues are worth considering in the context of the ongoing and evolving pipeline debate? Canada’s energy sector accounts for 1/10th of the national economy, rivaling the size of the manufacturing sector, and contributing significantly to the Canadian and provincial economies. For the sector to continue to succeed and to contribute positively to Canada’s economy over the long-term, a number of key challenges need to be solved. One of those challenges is building the infrastructure necessary to access new markets – including crude oil pipelines. Canadian oil production is expected to increase by over 40 per cent between 2016 and 2040—from 3.8 to 5.4 million barrels per day (MMb/d). At least two to three large crude oil export pipelines will be required to accommodate these growing volumes over the long-term. Meanwhile, recent studies by The Conference Board of Canada assessing the economic impacts of the Energy East and Trans Mountain expansion projects indicate that the benefits of these projects are significant--widespread across regions and industries--and that they will benefit the country for decades. In this webinar, find out the latest on the shifting environment for pipelines from two expert Conference Board of Canada economists, Michael Burt and Carlos A. Murillo.

Bringing the Workers to the Farm: The Importance of Temporary Foreign Workers in Canadian Agriculture

Labour shortages on Canada’s farms have doubled over the past decade. They are expected to double again in the next 10 years. Simply paying Canadians more to work in the sector or buying more machines is unlikely to make up this gap. Temporary foreign workers (TFWs) have played a major role in filling the labour gap in the past and will likely need to play a growing role in the future. Without TFWs, it is likely that a significant portion of Canadian farm land would lie fallow. One way of thinking of TFWs is in terms of globalization; rather than bringing the farms to where the workers are, we are bringing the workers to the farms. Join Michael Burt, the Conference Board of Canada’s Director, Industrial Economic Trends, for this presentation of Conference Board research about the current state of the agricultural labour force; the importance of temporary foreign workers in the sector; and policy options that governments and the sector could pursue. This webinar is based on the report Sowing the Seeds of Growth: Temporary Foreign Workers in Agriculture, produced by The Conference Board of Canada commissioned by the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC). CAHRC is a national, non-profit organization focused on addressing human resource issues facing agricultural businesses across Canada. CAHRC conducts industry research and develops products and services designed to help agricultural employers attract, retain, and develop the workforce they need to succeed.
