Canada is one of only a few industrialized nations that can claim to be a net exporter of energy; we export more than we import. In 2009, natural gas was the largest energy export for Canada in terms of volume, followed by crude oil, refined petroleum products (such household goods like carpets, clothing, washing detergent, etc.), natural gas liquids and primary electricity.
