Exploring Canada’s Energy Future

Hours and Location

Exploring Canada’s Energy Future

Tall buildings of a city on a sunny day are in the background. In the foreground we can see green lawn with solar panels and wind turbines.

How much do you know about Canada’s energy system?

Students will get the chance to explore data that predicts Canada’s energy future. They will then investigate statements made about energy demand and production in Canadian provinces and territories, using Canada Energy Regulator visualizations.

This program works best if the students have access to electronic devices: laptops, Chromebooks, tablets (smartphones are not ideal, but will work if no other devices are available). One device per one to three students is recommended.

This program is adapted from the Exploring Canada’s Energy Future Teacher Guide by Let’s Talk Energy.

This program is virtual via Zoom. We have implemented the following measures to ensure that our virtual programming is safe and secure:

  • Waiting room to prevent uninvited guests from joining the meeting
  • Controls in place to control if and when students can chat and share content
  • End-to-end encryption to ensure proper security
  • Recording of program is not permitted by any party
