Regional Energy and Resource Tables – Progress

Collaboration with our regional partners is progressing according to their preferred approach. Where one province or territory may still be fine-tuning its priorities, another might already be looking at next steps to deliver on its opportunities. Additionally, Indigenous partnership and engagement is essential and is being integrated within the individual processes.
