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.

Canada’s Forestry Sector: The Opportunity and the Uncertainty

Canada’s forestry sector has fared well in the current economic environment, but the industry is also facing a rising tide of uncertainty. Wood products is one of the manufacturing segments that continues to fare well in the current economic environment, thanks to rising U.S. demand, a low dollar and favourable access to the U.S. market. However, with no new Softwood Lumber Agreement in sight and U.S. protectionist sentiment on the rise following the election of Donald Trump, it is increasingly likely that Canadian producers will face trade restrictions on lumber in the coming year. Furthermore, the paper products industry faces decreasing demand for printed material at the same time as new pulp producers enter the global markets. In an uncertain business environment for a key Canadian industry, join Robert Meyer-Robinson for a five-year outlook for the Canadian wood and paper product industries. Robert will discuss the major indicators for the industry, including: production, employment, prices, revenue, cost, profitability and profit margin.
