Oilsands Transportation Infrastructure

Pembina Institute Perspective

Canada’s oilsands sector is planning a substantial increase in production in the years ahead. Companies have proposed significant new pipeline and rail projects to accommodate this projected growth, but Canada's current environmental policies are not strong enough to ensure that the cumulative impacts of current and future oilsands production remain below science-based limits. This backgrounder provides the Pembina Institute's perspective on new oilsands transportation initiatives.
