Exploring Canada’s Clean Technology Sector
What is Clean Technology, and how important are Natural Resources in the Canadian Economy?

Conrad Barber-Dueck
Statistics Canada

Conrad’s presentation will focus on two areas within the economy, clean technology and natural resources.  As Canadians become more aware of environmental issues, the study of what is clean technology is becoming ever more important. But what is clean technology? How big is the clean technology sector?

Natural Resources are an important part of the Canadian economy. How much of our economy is comprised of this activity? What are the recent trends?

This presentation will also address the economic impact of clean technology and natural resources on the economy, and what percentage of GDP is attributable to these two sectors.

Join MABE on February 16th to hear a two-pronged presentation on Clean Technology and Natural Resources.
