The very geography of Canada has led to the Canadian energy industry’s expertise in the generation and transmission of electricity, in particular hydroelectric power. The paradox of Canada’s vast geography is that it poses an energy supply problem to the 32 million people scattered over 10Mkm2, while at the same time offering a solution to the energy demands of its inhabitants.
