Energy Production Crude Oil. Canada produced million barrels per day (MMb/d) of crude oil in , an increase of 61% from (Figure 1).This ranked Canada as the 4 th largest oil producer in the world.; Canadian production is centered in western Canada, which accounted for 95% of total production in The remaining 5% was produced mostly in Newfoundland and Labrador.   The exploitation of Canada's MINERAL RESOURCES began before the arrival of Europeans.

As a country, Canada is fortunate to have one of the largest and most diverse endowments of natural resources in the world, representing the backbone of the economy and high standards of living. For instance, Canada’s energy, mining and forest sectors impart direct and indirect economic benefits, such as job creation and capital investments. The development of basic social infrastructure (schools, hospitals, transportation, communications, and even preservation of the forest environments) will require new energy sources. Energy policies will need to seek a balance between consumer demands, resource depletion, development and survival means, and sustainability. The balance itself. Natural resources industries include forestry, fishing, agriculture, mining and energy. These industries have played an important part in the country’s history and development. Today, the economy of many areas of the country still depends on developing natural resources, and a large percentage of Canada’s exports are natural resources.   Developing Reading Power (DRP)Exercises Wider reading will help improve vocabulary and also enrich a child’s understanding of the world around them. It will also benefit in all other aspects of learning as they are more readily able to comprehend the materials they encounter.

ensuring that natural resource wealth translates into sustained economic development. Maximizing the value of natural resources for sustained growth and development, and avoiding the resource curse, requires policies that formalize and codify revenue management procedures. Such laws are being put into place in countries around the. Waterpower is Canada’s most abundant source of clean and renewable electricity. It provides more than 60% of Canada’s total electricity today, with an installed capacity soon exceed MW. This makes Canada the second largest generator of hydroelectricity in the world, after China.
