Transform our Industry’s Future

CHOA was founded to support operating and service companies
commercializing Canada’s vast heavy oil and oil sands resources.

Today, CHOA embraces the vision of Canada
being the world’s most responsible and innovative oil producer.

We accelerate our members’ careers.

We deliver knowledge-sharing, networking, and leadership opportunities,
to spark the shifts and drive the advances society seeks from us.

And now we bring together people from a full range of stakeholders: operating companies, oilfield services,  professional services and financial services companies, education and research institutions, indigenous communities, and government and regulatory agencies.
