Canadian Opportunity

Canada`s helium resource potential is significant. With the fifth largest helium resource in the world, Canada has the opportunity to address both the needs of Canadians and export supply to other countries. Developing a Canadian helium industry is consistent with federal and provincial governments` commitment to support a global transition to cleaner forms of energy and the increased activity will provide short and long-term economic benefits to rural and Indigenous communities, as well as provide employment opportunities for Canadians.

SustainableResource

Much of Canada’s helium resources are located in southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan and co-produced with nitrogen, unlike alongside the production of natural gas or liquefied natural gas (LNG) elsewhere in the world. Using well-established responsible development practices, this opportunity uniquely positions Canada with a sustainable, long-term helium supply as the world transitions away from hydrocarbons.
