Canada’s target is to reduce emissions by 40-45% below 2005 levels by 2030. One of Canada’s greatest opportunities to reduce emissions is CCS.
A qualified talent pool is required to increase the scalability and affordability of CCS as a pathway to net zero. Workers that know how to design, construct, operate and maintain CCS infrastructure are needed. This includes engineers, geoscience professionals, operators, trades and technologists, and energy services personnel.
CCS technology advancements offer Canada’s workforce career transition and development opportunities. There are sufficient similarities between the skills and knowledge required for the CCS value chain and existing industries to enable workers to acquire necessary CCS skills through microcredentials and participate in the important work associated with progressing Canada’s low-carbon economy.
