Help Us Defend Canadian Oil & Gas
Oil Respect is a campaign to stand-up for Canada’s oil and gas industry, one of the most regulated and technologically advanced industries in the world. Each year our industry safely produces, refines, transports, and distributes products from jet fuel to fertilizer while providing well-paying jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenues for all Canadians. Yet, despite these facts, government policy and popular sentiment seem increasingly intent on marginalizing the sector and divesting from resource development.
The Oil Respect campaign has three goals:
1) Address the misinformation spread by opponents of oil and gas.
2) Give regular people who support the industry a voice.
3) Remind Canadians we have the highest living standards in the world because of oil and gas.

Oil Respect will EDUCATE and arm those most impacted with arguments, evidence, facts and real-life stories about the benefits of oil and gas development and what happens when we leave our oil wealth in the ground. EDUCATE yourself on the facts today!
Show off your Respect!
Hundreds of thousands of Canadians benefit directly, and millions more indirectly, from developing our oil and gas resources. It’s time for Canadians to RESPECT their oil and gas sector. Together we can amplify our message and each voice makes us even louder. You can make a difference with Oil Respect t-shirts and bumper stickers. Share your opinion and our content on social media.
Oil Respect will RALLY oilfield families, business owners, and industry supporters at our speaking events. Please click on the events section and join us at an Oil Respect event near you! Let’s hear your VOICE!
Oil Respect will launch online petitions designed to explain to provincial and federal governments why our industry needs enlightened policy to help us compete, such as competitive taxes and royalties, reasonable regulations, well defined and clear consultation processes, and streamlined assessment and approval processes. We will STAND-UP for ourselves and for Canadian oil and gas.
About the campaign
Canadian oil and gas is being hit, and being hit hard. Thousands of families across the country have lost their jobs and continue to struggle to find work. While this happens, government policy and popular sentiment seem increasingly intent on continuing to marginalize the sector and divest from the resource development Canadians rely on for their quality of life. The fact is, Canadians produce among the most responsible oil and gas products in the world, and this is something we should be proud of. OIL RESPECT asks you to help STAND UP for our industry by signing petitions, writing MLAs and MPs, and showing your support with Oil Respect stickers and t-shirts. Over time we hope to harness grassroots support to influence federal and provincial governments to more aggressively defend and promote our industry. Hundreds of thousands of Canadians benefit directly, and millions more indirectly, from developing our oil and gas resources. It’s time to stand behind our industry and show some OIL RESPECT.
Oil Respect has launched online petitions designed to persuade provincial and federal governments that the industry needs enlightened policy to help it grow. It will ask the Alberta government directly, and indirectly through supporters, to vigorously defend our Canadian energy industry. In Alberta, Oil Respect will ask the provincial government to declare February 13th 2017, Oil Respect Day, in honour of the 70th anniversary of the discovery of oil at Leduc #1 in 1947.
