Canada’s natural resources have been the foundation of our economy since the nation’s earliest beginnings and will continue to drive our economic prosperity into the future. Yet despite the importance of the sector to our economy there remain a number of widespread misconceptions about the forest product, metal and mineral, agriculture and energy industries.

In the Voice of Canadian Businesses’ first feature chat, our Senior Vice President of Policy, Warren Everson, talks with the Honourable David Emerson, Former Minister for International Trade, on the role natural resources play in the Canadian economy. Mr. Emerson is the Chair of The Partnership for Resource Trade, a new initiative that seeks to set the record straight about the importance and impact of Canada’s resource industries. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is a member of the partnership, which brings together individuals and businesses from across all sectors of the economy.
