Stand with oil sands workers calling for training in renewable energy

As oil sands workers, or friends and family of somebody in the energy industry, we acknowledge the contribution of fossil fuel extraction projects to our lives and livelihoods. As global citizens, we also acknowledge the need to reach climate change targets. Let's seize this opportunity and create jobs in the renewable energy sector.

We’re calling on the government of Alberta to invest in training programs, starting by retraining one thousand out-of-work oil industry electricians in Alberta in solar panel installation.

Our message is simple: This is a challenge that needs builders to build solutions. We can diversify job opportunities for Canadian workers with policy that supports renewables. This doesn't have to be at the expense of oil and gas. By preparing the renewable energy workforce it is a win-win for Canadian workers, our families, our economy and the environment.

Like many Canadians, we know what a drop in oil prices means for our jobs and families and no longer want to rely too heavily on any single energy resource for our economic well-being. 

We believe that together we can support the workforce and knowledge economy that will allow Canada to be a leader in the projects of tomorrow — projects that utilize cutting-edge technology to harness renewable energy sources and minimize the impacts of carbon-based extraction practices.

If you support us in our call for a diversified energy sector, please add your name.
