Exploring Net-zero in the Next Canada’s Energy Future Report

Letter from the Honourable Jonathon Wilkinson

In December 2021, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources and the Minister responsible for the CER, wrote a letter to the Chairperson of the CER’s Board of Directors, Cassie Doyle. The letter requested that the CER undertake scenario analysis consistent with Canada achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 as soon as possible.

Letters from Chairperson Doyle

In her response, Chairperson Doyle both welcomed the clarity provided by the Minister’s letter, and confirmed the next Canada’s Energy Future report will include modelling consistent with Canada’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

In the spring of 2022, Chairperson Doyle provided an update to the Minister on the progress of the next Canada’s Energy Future report. The update described the CER’s scenario approach and specified that the report will be released in the Spring of 2023.
In the Spring of 2023, Chairperson Doyle provided an update to the Minister that the 2023 edition of Canada’s Energy Future Report has been published.
