About the author
The content for this site has been developed by Dr. Emily Eaton (Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, University of Regina) who has been studying Saskatchewan’s oil economy since 2011. The purpose of the site is to round out government and industry information about oil impacts. Such sources tend to be quite narrowly focused on employment and growth. Photographs by Valerie Zink.
The 'Stories' tab profiles people living with oil in their communities, these stories have been documented and collected through a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant titled “What Sustains Saskatchewan’s Oil Economy?”
