ABSTRACT
Since the 1984 election of Brian Mulroney in Canada, the federal government has reached three important intergovernmental agreements in the energy sector. These accords—concerning management of Newfoundland's offshore resources, oil pricing and taxation in the western provinces, and natural gas pricing in western Canada—are Mulroney's showcase examples of his "renewed federalism." While there has been an increase in the degree of federal-provincial consultation, enhanced cooperation in the energy sector has been greatly facilitated by changes in the international energy situation. An examination of other sectors suggests that the position of the Mulroney government on the nature of the Canadian federation may not be much different from that held by the government of Pierre Trudeau.
