Date of Publication: October 18, 2022

The Maritimes Energy Association (MEA),with support from the Atlantic Canadian Opportunities Agency (ACOA) commissioned a report from Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) to look at the opportunities that exist for those working in the oil and gas sector to transition their skills to jobs in renewable energy.  

Key findings from EHRC’s report “Transitioning from Oil and Gas to Green Energy: Assessing Skills Transferability and Feasibility through an Atlantic Canadian Lens” shows that there are opportunities for both organizational and occupational transferability from the oil and gas sector to the green energy generation sector (i.e., electricity and renewable energy) in Atlantic Canada.
