Sommaire : Australia and Canada share a number of historical and economic similarities, especially in terms of commodity exports and natural resource development. Recently, their energy and climate policies have both undergone a period of significant change. In broad terms, this has involved putting a price on carbon, with the ultimate aim of transitioning towards a low carbon future. During this process, there has been intense debates over the most suitable mechanism, policy settings and treatment of energy exporting and energy intensive industries. In the post-Paris environment, it is now time to consider the future industry and policy landscape, especially for regions with large natural resource endowments. In looking at the Australian experience and as well as the development of the Quebec aluminium industry, now influenced by Rio Tinto’s global strategy, Mr Pickford will examine the implications for Quebec economic growth in energy-related industries, including the potential for LNG exports.
