Following an initial proposition in July 2012, the Premiers of all provinces and territories agreed to work together to develop a “Canadian Energy Strategy”. As the national strategy is being developed, many particular energy issues would also benefit from a more regionally based consensus as demonstrated by a recent energy-trade agreement announced by the Premiers of Ontario and Quebec (November 2014).
In fall 2013, the Commission sur les enjeux énergétiques du Québec launched a public consultation process looking at energy issues. Citizens and organizations throughout Québec are expressing their opinions, sharing their expertise and making suggestions about ways to deal with the main energy issues facing Québec. What energy-related challenges will Quebecers face in the future? What should be Québec's priorities in the energy field? What targets should be defined?
