The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce is proud to confirm that we will be hosting Hon. Sonya Savage, Minister of Energy, on March 29th for a virtual conversation. Minister Savage will provide an update on Alberta’s energy industry, discuss ongoing efforts to secure access to new markets, and share insights into future plans for our energy sector. With energy development and diversification being a key factor in our post COVID-19 recovery, this will be a must attend event for the business community.
Please confirm your attendance by Friday, March 26th @ 4 PM. This webinar event will be hosted via Zoom, and a unique link will be emailed to all registrants 12-24 hours prior to this event.
Minister Savage was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on April 16, 2019, as the MLA for Calgary-North West.
A life-long Albertan, Savage has been a strong voice championing pipelines for years. Earning a Master of Laws in Environment and Energy, she practiced law for 13 years before taking a job as an advocate for the oil and gas industry. After working 9 years at Enbridge, she accepted a role as the Sr. Director of Policy and Regulatory Affairs at the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) in 2015. She has handled the pipeline industry’s large policy files, including regulatory reform, Indigenous reconciliation, legal, environment and climate change.
Sonya Savage was appointed as Alberta’s Energy Minister on April 30, 2019. Relying on her extensive background in the industry, and spending the last 12 years fighting for pipelines and the energy sector, Savage will continue her work to promote and develop Alberta’s oil and gas wealth and deliver on getting pipelines built.
