Booms, busts and bitumenThe economic implications of Canadian oilsands development

Publication - Nov. 13, 2013 - By Steven Guilbeault, Sarah Dobson, Nathan Lemphers

This report, jointly published by Equiterre and the Pembina Institute, examines how the rapid pace of oilsands development is creating economic risks and regional disparities that could have long-term implications for Canada's economic prosperity. 

The report also provides pragmatic recommendations to address these concerns, such as improving the management of one-time resource wealth and eliminating preferential tax treatment for the oil and gas sector.
