In 2011 the Pembina Institute released Solving the Puzzle — our report outlining 19 policy solutions for responsible oilsands development. Here we evaluate progress to 2013 on implementing the solutions presented in that report.
A group of leading companies engaged with the Pembina Institute in 2012 to review the history of renewable energy activity in the oil and gas sector, share experiences, extract the opportunities, barriers and enablers, and draw some conclusions for how to move this area forward.

A joint federal and provincial review panel will conduct hearings this fall into a proposal to expand Shell Canada’s Jackpine oilsands mine. The Pembina Institute is opposing the project as a member of the Oil Sands Environmental Coalition (OSEC), which includes the Alberta Wilderness Association and the Fort McMurray Environmental Association, and is represented by Ecojustice.
The Pembina Institute's concerns about the proposed Jackpine mine expansion include impacts to wildlife, wetlands and forests, air quality, acid deposition, water use and climate change.
This report looks at the extent to which oilsands production and exports are affecting Canada’s economy, and explores the longer-term economic implications of increased reliance on oilsands expansion to support economic growth and generate public revenue.

Keystone XL in context: oilsands and environmental management Two decades of ineffective policies have left their mark on the Canadian landscape
Filling the proposed KXL pipeline with oilsands will result in nearly a 50 per cent increase in oilsands production. Until environmental management of the oilsands is improved, KXL will cause significant environmental harm due to increased oilsands production.
These briefing materials provide a summary on the impact of oilsands development on land, species at risk, First Nations, water and tailings and greenhouse gases.
The Pembina Institute's detailed platform analysis compares the commitments the Ontario Liberal, NDP and Progressive Conservative parties have made on a range of sustainable energy priorities.
The analysis looks at where the parties stand on issues such as investing in renewable power generation, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, creating incentives for energy conservation and expanding transit systems.
Ontario has taken the laudable step of closing down its entire fleet of coal-fired power plants — a move supported across partisan lines. This, however, is but one of the many changes that is coming to Ontario's electricity system.
Tim Weis, director of renewable energy & energy efficiency, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about the role that renewable energy could play in the future of electricity generation in Ontario.
Behind the switch: pricing Ontario electricity options examines how scaling back Ontario's plans to develop renewable energy would affect electricity prices, using an integrated energy system simulator to compare two main scenarios.
This report explores significant opportunities for Ontario farmers to benefit from investments in renewable energy on their farms.
Written in collaboration with the Pembina Institute, the Heinrich Boell Foundation, the United Church of Canada and Climate Action Network Canada, the report makes a trans-Atlantic comparison between Germany and Ontario, examining ways in which Ontario farmers could benefit from Ontario clean energy policies and incentives.
This report examines the evidence from a wide range of international and Canadian research on "green" jobs and the economic impacts of climate policies. The report finds that Canada’s governments could create more jobs by implementing strong climate policies than by continuing with business as usual.
Evaluation of the Government of Canada's Greenhouse Gas Reduction Policies Prepared for the Climate Change Performance Index 2011
This evaluation was prepared by the Pembina Institute as input to the Climate Change Performance Index 2011. The index, published by Germanwatch and Climate Action Network Europe, ranks countries’ performance in controlling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Full information on the index, including countries’ rankings, is available at http://www.germanwatch.org/ccpi.htm.
This note provides a general overview of the issues on the table at the annual UN climate conference in Cancun, Mexico, and assesses the Government of Canada's positions heading into the talks.
