About

What is OilSandsFactCheck.org all about?

Well, as the name might suggest, we’re about checking facts and providing the proper context — making sure that the best and most accurate information is available when it comes to the development, delivery and impact of secure sources of energy derived from Canada’s oil sands.

By now, perhaps, you’ve heard that the size of the resource is immense: some experts believe Alberta’s oil sands could someday prove to be the largest reserve of oil in the world. But can we access those resources safely? And convert them into jobs, security and opportunity here in the United States without harming our environment? Well, everybody is entitled to their own opinion – as they say – but not their own facts.  Here at OSFC, we’re not in the business of opinions– we provide facts.

OSFC is supported by a broad coalition of organizations and interests. We may represent many interests, but when it comes to getting the facts out about the promise and potential of responsible oil sands development – about the jobs it makes possible, and the footprint that continues to shrink by the day – well, that’s something every one of us can get behind.

So thanks for visiting our site. Take a look around, stay a while, don’t be a stranger — and let us know what we can do to make it better. You can reach us at: media@oilsandsfactcheck.org.
