About US

The Canadian Energy and Climate Nexus / Le Lien Canadien de L’Energie et du Climat is a non-governmental, non-profit organization that aims to guide Canadians in the effective development of all-inclusive energy systems – in balance with climate change constraints. Through collaborative problem-solving, collective commitment, and bold action, we will provide a clear pathway to secure Canada’s current and future prosperity for generations to come.

WHO WE ARE

Headed by a board representing science and business alike, The CECN was founded to provide a connective platform for highly complex projects that will be instrumental in establishing Canadian energy and climate leadership. We are a growing community of people and organizations who are committed to inclusivity and depolarization.

OUR WHY

We believe that a climate-friendly energy system is possible and essential.

Our Mission

Through Inclusivity, Knowledge, and Action, we will develop effective, balanced solutions for the energy and climate issues affecting our country. Together, we will lead Canada towards becoming a global leader within the energy and climate sector and ensure our future is safe, secure, and sustainable.

OUR VISION

The CECN was built upon a foundation of both pride in our country’s achievements and a recognition that real success entails the consistent pursuit of improvement. We aim to dismantle systems of polarization by promoting meaningful and balanced conversations from an array of differing viewpoints, interests, heritages, and backgrounds.
