Institutions & Energy Policy
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is the ministry in charge of the development of federal energy policy.
Oil production (crude, NGL and non-conventional oil) has increased by 64% since 2010 (6%/year) and has almost doubled since 2000 to 268 Mt in 2019. Production has been increasing following the development of non-conventional oil (synthetic oil from oil sands and raw bitumen), which now accounts for 58% of total oil production, and offshore production.
Motor fuel prices are lower than in Europe, but higher than in the US. Following the recent decrease in oil prices, motor fuel prices in 2019 went to US$1.06/l for gasoline and US$0.93/l for diesel. In addition to the GST and PST (if applicable), excise taxes on motor fuels are also charged by the federal government (diesel US$4c/l, gasoline US$10c/l) and provincial governments.
At 8 toe, Canada's per capita energy consumption is among the highest in the world and almost triple the average EU level. Electricity consumption per capita is around 14 500 kWh.
Total energy consumption has been increasing slightly since 2010 (1.3%/year on average at normal climate), reaching 301 Mtoe in 2019.
Issues & Prospects
CER released its long-term energy outlook for 2040. The report shows that crude oil and natural gas production continues to increase, reaching 7 mb/d and 566 mcm/d (206 bcm/year), respectively. Natural gas and renewables will be used to displace coal-fired electricity generation that will be phased out by 2030.

In the Canada energy market report you will find the following tables:
- Economic Indicators: Annual historical data including population, GDP growth, imports and exports, inflation rate, energy security and efficiency indicators, CO2 emissions.
- Supply Indicators: Historical data including oil and gas reserves, electric and refining capacity, energy production, power production and external trade. All are detailed by energy source
- Demand Indicators: Historical data including consumption per inhabitant, consumption trends, total consumption by energy source, final consumption by energy source and sector, and electricity consumption by sector.
- Energy Balances: Single table displaying the overall energy industry balance per annum, also graphically displayed by energy sub-segment.
- Infrastructure Projects: Covers power plant projects by energy, technology, status and operator, gas plant projects by status and operator and LNG contracts.
The Canada energy market data since 1990 and up to 2019 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Canada country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.
Key Data included in the excelsheet:
- Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
- Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
- Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
- Energy Balance: total and per energy.
- Canada Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Canada energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
The Canada country report is complemented with a national power generation dashboard (excel file) from our Power Plant Tracker Service.
Data included in the excelsheet:
