How Canadians get the energy they need while protecting the environment we all share.

Every day in Canada, millions of barrels of petroleum products and trillions of feet of natural gas flow safely through transmission lines operated by the members of CEPA (the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association). Every year, members move approximately 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas each year. That is 97 per cent of Canada’s daily crude oil and natural gas from producing regions to markets throughout North America.

CEPA has made a commitment to Canadians to deliver the energy they need in the safest most responsible way, and a big part of that is protecting the environment. CEPA combines the expertise of Canada’s leading pipeline companies to work together to continuously improve safety until we reach our goal of zero incidents. This site will show you how we do it.

Why does the common person still need fossil fuels? In homes we can have electric heaters/ovens/stoves... On the road there are electric alternatives. I know for industrial and commercial we still really need fossil fuels HOWEVER there are options that SHOULD be subsidized by the govt that are greener. Really the only reason I can see having pipelines is for mass power generation at natural gas burning power plants and even then they now have technology that can store 100% of all gas fired power plant emissions (seriously this is a thing look it up online). As a society we NEED TO work together to make this happen, it may not be easy or cheap but it has to happen NOW...- Ryan, Abbotsford, BC
