CAPP supports sharing education, knowledge and information about Canada's oil and gas industry. We are proud to partner with the following organizations.
As concerns about the environment and economy increase, so too does the need for balanced and credible information about energy in Canada. The Canadian Centre for Energy Information was created to meet that need. Visit Centre for Energy

B.C. Science and Community Environmental Knowledge Fund
In 1998, the Government of British Columbia entered into an agreement with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) and the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC) to establish the Environment Fund (the Fund), which would be administered by the Oil and Gas Commission (OGC). The Fund was allocated $5 million over five years to support studies concerning practical ways of addressing environmental issues related to oil and gas exploration and development in British Columbia.
In 2002, CAPP and EPAC restated their support of the Fund for a total of $9 million. They also agreed to refocus and rename the Fund, changing it from a purely research-based, environment fund to a broader based fund which incorporates science and community environmental knowledge-thus the new name Science and Community Environmental Knowledge Fund (SCEK Fund).
The purpose of the SCEK Fund (the Fund), as stated in the March 24, 2005, agreement between the founding parties, is to support and facilitate research concerning practical ways of addressing environmental issues related to oil and gas exploration in British Columbia. This fund does not replicate research that is the responsibility of government.
Study findings will be incorporated, where appropriate, into practices and regulations. Read more about Science and Community Environmental Knowledge Fund
