Advocating for Alberta energy

Alberta’s innovative energy sector will be at the centre of Premier Rachel Notley’s mission to New York and Toronto from April 8 to 11.

“Alberta is a key player in the global energy sector. We are a responsible, future-forward energy producer with innovative solutions to offer investors and producers across the world as the industry shifts towards cleaner energy. We continue to be recognized for our expertise in responsible energy production – for reducing emissions and investing in new technologies.”

Rachel Notley, Premier

Premier Notley will be in New York for The Future of Energy Summit, hosted by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). The summit is an invitation-only forum for leaders in industry, finance and policy to explore current energy issues and the future of the energy sector.

During her mission, the Premier will:

  • Deliver remarks and participate in a panel discussion at the BNEF “Alberta Power Prices” session.
  • Participate at the Women in Energy event at New York University.
  • Lead an investors’ roundtable on energy.
  • Meet with the Canadian consul general in New York.

The mission is an opportunity to promote the mutual benefits of Alberta-U.S. trade. Bilateral trade between the two jurisdictions is estimated to create more than 700,000 Alberta jobs and nearly one million jobs in the U.S.

Before returning to Edmonton, Premier Notley will meet with major bank economists and business leaders in Toronto. She will provide a keynote address at the CAPP Energy Symposium where she will reiterate the importance of building a pipeline to Canadian tidewater.

The estimated cost of the New York mission for the Premier, three political staff, one government official and a security detail is $23,000.
