The 2020 Canadian Chapter Annual Meeting will be held virtually on September 24, 2020. The Canadian Chapter is presenting a half-day Continuing Professional Development Credits.
In September 2019 the Energy Bar Association Board of Directors approved a charter for the Canadian Chapter. The names of the first Board of Directors are set out in this program. During this pandemic we have been reminded again that the Canada/Us border is the longest undefended land border in the world. Many American energy companies have significant investment in Canada and Canadian investment in the American energy sector is substantial.
The focus of the Canadian Chapter is to provide a better understanding of cross-border issues in the North American energy sector. The Canadian chapter’s first annual meeting was scheduled to take place in Washington in April, 2020 at the same time as the EBA annual meeting. The coronavirus cancelled that. We look forward, however, to the September Zoom meeting and hope to welcome energy counsel and regulators on both sides of the border.
