Regional Energy and Resource Tables

What are the Regional Tables?

The Regional Energy and Resource Tables (Regional Tables) are joint partnerships between the federal government and individual provinces and territories in collaboration with Indigenous partners – and with input from key stakeholders – to identify and accelerate shared economic priorities for a low-carbon future in the energy and resource sectors.

By aligning resources and timelines and better coordinating regulatory and permitting processes, each region can turn its individual strengths and unique mix of natural resources into a comparative advantage for the global, low-carbon economy.

Nationally driven, regionally focused

Regional growth opportunities will come from creating new products and processes or decarbonizing existing ones to thrive in a net-zero future and ensure Canada delivers on its ambitious climate and nature goals.

The Regional Tables are supporting these efforts by helping to develop a long-term vision of Canada’s economic success – one that includes fostering clean growth, ensuring Indigenous participation, setting clear economic objectives, and better prioritizing federal action.

An alternative collaboration mechanism has been established with Alberta, and discussions are underway with Quebec.
