Foreign Investment in Canada's Oil and Gas Sector: New and Emerging Challenges
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractOver the last few years significant investments in the Canadian resource sector have been made by foreign, state-owned investors. Recent developments in this area have raised concerns that Industry Canada is adopting a more restrictive approach with respect to state-owned enterprises. This article examines the history and evolution of Canada’s foreign investment regime against the current regime in place in the energy sector. The article then examines the practical and commercial effects of the recent developments and concludes by providing examples of how to navigate the emerging commercial and regulatory framework.
