PetroChem Canada brings leaders from the downstream sector together with government, academia and the supply chain to discuss the opportunities & challenges of developing Canada’s downstream sector and competing in world markets.

Developing Canada’s downstream sector is key to maximizing the value of Canada’s natural resources.  Let’s work together to become more globally competitive by further increasing our processing capacities across the country. By manufacturing more added-value products, we increase the true value of our resources, create jobs; and we will  embrace technologies to do it in an environmentally conscious and sustainable way. 
PetroChem Canada provides the forum for bringing industry together to have these discussions.
PetroChem Canada is the premier conference in Canada that brings together the petrochemical, chemical and emerging biochemical manufacturers and their supply chain to discuss the business & technical opportunities and challenges of developing Canada’s downstream sector. Sessions consist of a variety of topics covering key economic, political, environmental and technical issues affecting the petrochemical and biochemical industries.
