What is Canada Assembly & Dinner?

The annual Oil & Gas Council’s Canada Assembly will once again return to Calgary this May.

This year’s theme and content will focus on E&P strategy and top energy opportunities in Canada. The Assembly, welcoming over 270 executives every year, is the ideal platform for networking and personal introductions to key clients, many of which result in deals. We will continue our celebrated tradition of honoring the industry and community achievements of one of our colleagues at the 2018 VIP Awards Dinner- a highlight of every local executive’s calendar.

This year’s recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award is John Dielwart the founder of ARC Resources & the Vice Chairman of ARC Financial. Join us for a full day of industry-led discussions, C-level networking and the celebration of the achievements of John Dielwart.

Success Stories

“Over the last couple of weeks since your event, I have had many executives in the patch tell me how much they enjoyed your event. Very professionally organized and had a high calibre group of panellists and attendees.  It is most surprising your Lifetime Achievement Award is only 3 years old – it already seen in the business community is a well-established event.’

Adam Waterous

Managing Partner & CEO, Waterous Energy

“The growth in the Oil Council to include renewables this year was exciting- it assists us to assess the impact of competing sources of energy.  I look forward each year to attending this event for its high profile presenters and networking with other energy professionals.  For those that have never attended please consider this event next year, once you attend you will benefit- it has to offer”

Lee Wahl

Country Manager, KUFPEC Canada Inc.

“The event provided a useful context to catch up with old friends and meet some new people. Attendees included a high ratio of interesting movers and shakers. It allowed a chance to hear the tones the industry is humming with. I enjoyed dinner seated beside an interesting politician, and Adam Waterous provided an entertaining and educational presentation”
