The presentation includes differences between the energy markets and regulatory environments of the United States and Canada. Four key areas are discussed: division of energy and environmental jurisdictional responsibilities between the federal and provincial or territorial governments, availability and reliance on other renewable and non-renewable resources, subtle differences in water- and fish-related legislation and regulations, and the critical role played by First Nations and Aboriginal Peoples in all facets of land use and development in Canada.
