The Protecting the Investment in Our Future report was commissioned by the Chamber of Commerce, UDI Wood Buffalo, and the Fort McMurray Real Estate Board. This report examines the persistent socio-economic impacts of rapid oil sands development that constrain provincial revenues, thwart the ability of Fort McMurray to continue to host the oil sands, and undermine responsible oil sands development.
If responsible oil sands development is to continue as the engine of the provincial and national economies, and to provide the revenue to support economic growth and diversification, three things must be true.
The report makes 69 recommendations to address persistently vexatious socio-economic irritants that reduce profits, government revenues and municipal sustainability.
