Canada is already big in renewables, two-thirds of Canada’s power generation and just under 20 per cent of its total final energy supply come from significant hydropower resources, which make it the second largest producer of hydropower in the world. But the country used to be big on oil and gas as it owns large resources. Only lately, the country has been investing in other renewable energy sources like wind and solar.

“We are delighted to welcome Canada as a new member of the IRENA family,” said IRENA Director-General, Adnan Z. Amin. “Canada has vast renewable energy resource potential and long-standing experience in low-carbon development that it can share through international cooperation. We look forward to working with the Canadian government as well as the private sector and research institutions to advance energy transformation. Canada’s membership firmly underscores the leadership it can demonstrate in renewable energy technology, sustainable development and global energy decarbonisation.”   

“The growing green economy is among the greatest economic opportunities for Canada in a generation,” said Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources. “Becoming an IRENA member will accelerate Canada’s efforts to build a clean energy future which will bring new economic growth and thousands of new, well-paying jobs.”
