The recently published June 2011 report by the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI) concluded that the number of U.S. jobs created or preserved as a result of increased oil sands development in Canada could be expected to grow from 80,000 in 2010 to 600,000 by 2035
. In addition, CERI determined that as oil sands production increases in Canada, so will the demand for imported U.S. goods and services, adding an estimated $200 billion - $800 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product
between 2010 and 2035. A link to the study can be found on the Resources page
The map below outlines the jobs that would be added in each state if oil sands continue to be developed and projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline are completed.
