A crucial issue today centers on the extraction, transportation and distribution of energy resources worldwide, particularly gas and oil. These resources cross every border and are a critical part of every country’s international policy. In particular, current discourse revolves around the need for energy security, free North American trade and essential job creation through the expansion of energy production.

CanAmerican Energy is a company founded on the premise of exceptional leadership in the realm of global energy production and management. In the spirit of great classical monuments commemorating historical events and leaders, the CanAmerican Energy Arts Team presents a monumental celebratory sculpture, consisting of two large oil barrels connected by a pipeline, to represent Canadian-American energy independence. The Monument to North American Energy Security is to be inaugurated by the company's Vice President of Public Relations, celebrating the importance of oil independence and the successful partnership of Canada and the United States in bringing about a secure and sustainable future.

The CanAmerican Energy Arts Team was formed in 2005 as a means to offer an alternative style of communication with the general public through cultural investment and improvement. Using a broad range of traditional and digital media, the CanAmerican Energy Arts Team has enriched the cultural landscape across Canada and the United States.
