The report, which was released May 12, said Canada in 2007 remained able to meet all of its own energy
needs, adding that the oil industry last year accounted for nearly 20% or $90 billion of the total value
of Canadian exports. Canada, the report said, exported an average 1.85 million b/d of crude oil in 2007
worth more than $41 billion, up from $39.3 billion in 2006.More than half of Canada's crude oil exports
flowed to the US Midwest. According to the US Energy Information Administration, Canada supplies
nearly 20% of US daily crude oil imports, more than any other nation.

Benzie, Robert. ”Ontario vital for American exports U.S. senators told; Business group lobbies
Washington against further tightening of border.” The Toronto Star. May 24, 2007.
As border restrictions loom, the head of the province's largest business organization has a powerful
warning for American lawmakers: Ontario is a far larger U.S. export market than China. Ontario
Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Len Crispino, in Washington lobbying politicians against
further tightening of the border, said some senators and members of Congress are surprised to learn of
the province's importance to the U.S. economy. The U.S. exports to China about $55 billion (in goods
annually). We compared it to what the U.S. exports to Ontario alone - not Canada, but to Ontario -
and it's about $135 billion" (all figures in U.S. dollars).
