Calling Canadian Energy Workers: Take Our Survey on Future Job Transitions

As part of our PowerShare research project on planning effective and fair transitions for workers through the coming transformation of energy systems, the Centre for Future Work has designed a survey for people currently working in any fossil fuel industry in Canada: including oil and gas production, oilfield services, coal mining, petrochemicals, natural gas distribution, and related sectors.

The survey takes about 5 minutes, and gathers information on energy workers’ priorities for what types of policies would best support a gradual, supported labour transition – and what stakeholders (governments, fossil fuel companies, unions, or others) are best placed to lead and fund such a transition.

If you work in a fossil fuel-related industry, please take the survey through this link.

And if you know others who work in one of these industries, please forward the link to them! Thank you for your participation, and watch this space for results of our research in mid-2023.
