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. One of the least densely populated countries in the world, with a rigorous climate and large distances between population centres, Canada has been graced with water, whether falling or running or still water, and thus water-based power ready to meet Canada’s relatively high per capita energy use.
