Who is TransCanada?
TransCanada is a Canadian company with more than 60 years of experience building pipelines safely and reliably.
A leader in the responsible development of energy infrastructure, we construct and operate natural gas and oil pipelines, power generation stations and gas storage facilities across North America.
Our natural gas transmission network, at 68,500 kilometres (42,500 miles), is one of the largest in North America, transporting some 20 per cent of the continent’s daily gas supply. With ownership or interest in 21 power facilities capable of generating 11,800 megawatts (MW) of electricity, TransCanada is helping to supply a demand that continues to grow by approximately one per cent annually. As North Americans call for cleaner forms of energy, TransCanada continues to invest in emission-less sources.
We are proud that millions of North Americans can depend on us for the energy they need. We are depended upon to fuel transportation, power businesses, heat homes and move the petroleum products needed to manufacture millions of goods for domestic use and exports.
