Canada

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, Canada has committed at least USD 20.76 billion to supporting different energy types through new or amended policies, according to official government sources and other publicly available information. These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 10.77 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 54 policies (25 quantified and 29 unquantified)
  • At least USD 2.02 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 9 policies (8 quantified and 1 unquantified)
  • At least USD 325.91 million for unconditional clean energy through 17 policies (16 quantified and 1 unquantified)
  • At least USD 7.59 billion for conditional clean energy through 27 policies (22 quantified and 5 unquantified)
  • At least USD 49.08 million for other energy through 10 policies (5 quantified and 5 unquantified)

By energy type, Canada committed at least USD 12.62 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 10.65 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 1.97 billion to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, some public money committed for coal (1 policy with the value of public money unquantified).

Further, no public money commitments identified for hydrogen based on fossil fuels.

Finally, Canada committed at least USD 2.93 million to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 2.93 million to conditional multiple fossil fuels).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of Canada through monetary and fiscal policies in response to the crisis may also benefit different elements of the energy sector. However, these values are not available from official legislation and statements and therefore are not included in the database. Meanwhile, in addition to monetary and fiscal measures, the database lists other policies and regulations that can also provide benefits to producers and consumers of different energy types.

These public money commitments are additional to many other government policies that had existed to support different energy types before the COVID19 pandemic.

The sole criterion for selecting a winning bid is the total amount of money the bidder commits to spend on exploration of the parcel. The successful bidder is required to post a security deposit for 25 per cent of the work expenditure bid. If the bidder does not meet its work commitment, the security deposit is forfeit and the investment opportunity is lost. Under this new policy, forfeited security deposits can be reinvested into offshore exploration projects.

This federal measure ensures energy producers are included and prioritized in the Business Credit Availability Program that is provided through Business Development Canada and Export Development Canada. On May 11, the government announced it would expand the BCAP program to mid-sized companies with larger financing needs, including loans of up to CAD 60 million per company and loan guarantees of up to CAD 80 million. On June 18th, the federal government announced the Mid-Market Guarantee and Financing Program as part of BCAP, which is intended to fund operational cashflow needs with support for sectors "particularly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and/or the recent decline in oil and gas prices," such as oil and gas by providing loans between CAD 12.5 million and CAD 60 million prior to September 30, 2020. 90% of financing for this program is provided by Business Development Canada. As of July 8, 2020, total funding provided through BCAP for all sectors was at least CAD 81.25 billion, including CAD 40 billion through the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Loan and Guarantee Program. No figures are currently available for the Mid-Market Guarantee and Financing Program.

This change applies to over 50,000 companies and is estimated to prevent bill increases for Class B electricity consumers by at least 15%. Large industrial and commercial Class A consumers will receive the same percentage reduction. Global adjustment rates will be held in line with pre-COVID-19 levels. Ontario's electricity grid is mixed; only a portion of this change would represent deferrals for fossil fuel or nuclear-based energy. The government plans to recover deferred costs starting in January 2021 over a period of 12 months.

CAD 1 billion will be provided to Alberta, CAD 400 million to Saskatchewan, and CAD 120 million to British Columbia. In Alberta, notably, CAD 200 million of provided funding will be a loan to the Orphan Well Association, which is supposed to be funded by industry levies. In British Columbia, federal funding will support three programs: CAD 100 million for the newly created Dormant Sites Reclamation Program, CAD 15 million for the Orphan Sites Reclamation Program, and CAD 5 million for the Legacy Sites Reclamation Program.

EDC had their mandate expanded to support domestic businesses in 2008, and also provides substantial support to domestic oil and gas companies and operations. Under the most recent changes, EDC's domestic mandate was further expanded, and limits on the liability that EDC can incur have increased from CAD 45 billion to CAD 90 billion until at least October 2020. Limits on EDC's Canada Account have also been increased from CAD 20 billion to CAD 75 billion until at least October 2020. These measures are highly likely to benefit the oil and gas industry as EDC provides on average nearly CAD 13.8 billion in support of oil and gas companies each year, more than five times the support categorized as 'cleantech'. Transparency on disbursements and individual transactions from EDC is low.
