About CEPA Foundation

The CEPA Foundation brings the entire industry together.

Bringing the entire pipeline industry together to develop stronger standards, collaborate on industry practices and create innovations for the safe transmission of energy in Canada.

Who we are

The days of quietly transporting oil and gas products to market are long gone. With demanding expectations to find and deliver our products safely into new markets, cutting-edge technologies, and increased transparency, our industry has changed forever.

While the energy pipeline industry begins with the pipeline operators transporting products to market, often overlooked are the critical companies along the way that enable these products to be transported.

These key industry players are vital components to the success of the pipeline industry, and we believe our collective voice can implement change and improve the industry. No other foundation exists in Canada where energy pipeline industry leaders are brought together, under one roof, to solve industry issues in a collaborative and engaging manner.

What we do

We work together to share ideas, develop solutions, promote research, and advocate on behalf of the pipeline industry. It is an opportunity to work with large and small organizations across all related industry sectors that share the common goal of improving the pipeline industry. In doing so, the CEPA Foundation will leverage its membership so that the pipeline industry continues to improve its performance, as it relates to its reputation, safety, reliability, efficiency, technology and environmental responsibility
