Oilpatch workers have a plan, but Ottawa needs to act

As oil sands workers — or friends and family of someone in the energy industry — we acknowledge the contribution of fossil fuel extraction projects to our lives and livelihoods. We also know firsthand the many hardships endured by our out-of-work brothers and sisters, while acknowledging the urgent need to act on climate change.

That’s why we’re calling on the governments of Canada and Alberta to foster job opportunities for skilled workers that are aligned with our climate commitments.

Our plan is simple. Oil and gas workers are highly skilled and can be rapidly put to work building renewable energy projects they just need upskilling support.

They need Canada’s manufacturing sector and existing energy projects retooled for renewables. They need government to support contractors and unions that want to make a clean transition.

What they don’t need is to remain dependent on the boom-and-bust cycles of oil and gas.

We heard from real workers across Canada who shared their hopes and stories to help us build the Workers’ Climate Plan. We know they care about the environment, the health of their families and pioneering change.

Iron & Earth is here to make sure the transition to a green energy economy doesn’t come at the expense of today’s energy workers, because they know energy production doesn’t have to come at the expense of the planet.

Tell government to Retrain, Retool and Rebuild Canada’s energy sector by adding your name now.
