CAPP represents companies, large and small, exploring for, developing and producing natural gas and crude oil throughout Canada. CAPP's member companies produce about 85 per cent of Canada's natural gas and crude oil. CAPP's associate members provide a wide range of services that support the upstream crude oil and natural gas industry.
Despite its relative size to other industries within Canada, the upstream Canadian oil and natural gas industry competes for investment, labour, and capital in an increasingly globalized world. In an effort to maintain the economic competitiveness of Canada's industry, CAPP advocates for governments to employ a balanced public policy approach that enhances the industry's overall reputation, while highlighting our world class environmental, safety, and regulatory track record.
