The Statistical Framework for Energy in Canada provides an overview of Canada's current energy statistics system and serves as a guide to facilitate the strategic planning of energy statistics in Canada.

  Note to readers

The Statistical Framework for Energy in Canada encompasses three primary components:

  1. Energy supply and demand information comprising volumetric data on energy production, distribution and consumption;
  2. Economic information and accounts related to the energy sector and its sub-industries; and
  3. Environmental statistics and accounts that measure the effects of energy on the environment.

This framework is the result of a four-year collaboration between Statistics Canada and Natural Resources Canada.


The publication A Statistical Framework for Energy in Canada (Catalogue number57-602-G) is now available from the Browse by key resource module of our website, under Publications.
