CANADA ENERGY DINNER

The Canada Assembly and Dinner took place on 28 February 2022 in Calgary. A huge thank you to all our sponsors and speakers at this year's Assembly.

The Canada Energy Dinner is a half-day gathering for Canada’s most senior finance and energy executives.

This year the focus was on the 3 key questions keeping the industry on its toes: What will the Energy company of the future look like; how to ensure ESG best practice and the creative financing strategies that will guarantee access to capital.

Following the Assembly, 300 industry leaders gathered over dinner to celebrate Tourmaline President & CEO, Mike Rose as he was presented with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and Heather Culbert, Director of Whitecap Resources, as she was presented with this year's Women's Energy Council Executive of the Year Award.
