Canada is one of the largest oil and gas producing nations in the world, and the oil and gas sector is its most important export industry.

With the rapid increase of green energy investments globally, stock markets have begun viewing oil and gas firms in Canada and the United States as mature with an uncertain future — despite recent record profits and increases in stock prices.
