The CHFCA and Government of Canada release new hydrogen sector profile

OTTAWA – The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and the Government of Canada are pleased to announce the release of a new hydrogen sector profile.

For more than a decade, the Government of Canada and the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) have collaborated to develop a comprehensive profile of the Canadian hydrogen and fuel cell sector.

The new profile serves to capture trends, growth and achievements for the Canadian sector, offer insights into the current state of the sector, and provide valuable information for policy makers, investors and other stakeholders.

The 2022 profile was commissioned by the CHFCA in partnership with Natural Resources Canada, Global Affairs Canada, and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), and conducted by MNP LLP. The information presented in the profile was collected through a survey of Canadian companies, educational institutes and government agencies that were directly involved in hydrogen and fuel cell-related activities in 2021.

The profile also includes select industry highlights that were prepared based on publicly available information and information provided directly by organisations that participated in the consultations.


The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson , Minister of Natural Resources:

“Hydrogen is a critical tool in the fight against climate change. It is enabling the decarbonisation of sectors including transportation and heavy industry, while unlocking a suite of new opportunities across Canada. The CHFCA’s Sector Profile demonstrates how our government is working with industry to help Canada achieve our potential to become a global hydrogen leader.”

Ivette Vera-Perez, President and CEO, CHFCA:

“We are proud of our partnership with the Government of Canada, and grateful for the opportunity to highlight the tremendous growth of the hydrogen sector over the past years. An overwhelming majority of survey respondents saw a bright future ahead, with substantial revenue increases and job creation. Our thanks to all the organizations that contributed to the development of the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Sector Profile 2022.”
