Last summer the Alberta government released “Alberta’s Recovery Plan” to create jobs, build capital and diversify the economy. Key elements of this plan included creating jobs and investing in Energy and Infrastructure. This plan is well underway but also requires private industry (including the energy industry) to invest alongside the government. But, the investment and capital build environment is changing rapidly and significantly. So today on The Crownsmen Show have two people from MNP to help unpack 3 streams:

  • Environmental Legislation/regulation
  • Indigenous Consultation
  • ESG (Environmental Social Governance) and the connection to raising capital
