In the past, Canada has not been competitive in the global arena to attract major petrochemical investment. How does Canada become more attractive to global industry players to develop petrochemical clusters that will effectively utilize Canada’s feedstocks, generate exports and create jobs?


This session will focus on the importance of Canada’s competitive advantage in attracting global investment which will diversify Canadian exports and the markets Canada can access. Panelists will aim to answer the following questions:


  • What is Canada’s competitiveness relative to other jurisdictions?
  • What are the barrier’s to increased competitiveness?
  • How do we break these down to optimize near Term Investment?
  • How can we collaborate to improve efficiencies and ultimately improve our competitive environment?
