Public Outreach

PSAC is reaching out to the public on behalf of the service sector – and the entire industry – with a number of initiatives:

The site answers basic questions about Canada’s oil and gas industry, organized under two main sections: Oil and Gas and You and Oil and Gas Basics. The site is a starting point for people wanting to learn about this industry. Users can come to the site to get a basic introduction to oil and gas, then link to more detailed and specific websites if they want additional information.


PatchWorks explains how the oilpatch works in a series of short, monthly articles. Patchworks is posted on the website, distributed to PSAC member companies, and shared with selected media.

Community Partners

PSAC, along with industry and government partners, has developed a Community Partners program. This industry-wide program focuses on local concerns related to oil and gas activity – dust, gates, garbage, noise and driving. The purpose of the program is to remind oil and gas workers and contractors to treat area residents and property with respect. For more information, visit
