CEPA Statement on COVID-19 Situation
March 17, 2020 | News Releases

The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) and its member companies treat the safety and wellbeing of employees, contractors, partners and communities as our top priority. We are deeply concerned with the evolving COVID-19 situation and have taken early, proactive steps to provide a safe working environment that enables the continued operation of our businesses.

CEPA members understand their role is to provide a critical service and products to customers across the country. They go to great lengths to build and maintain public trust. Our members all have business continuity and emergency response plans to ensure they can continue supplying energy to customers. Companies identify critical functions and put processes in place to keep those going.

CEPA member companies also have a mutual emergency assistance agreement in place. Whether it’s a pipeline incident or another type of disruption, CEPA members come together to resolve common problems and protect the safety of employees and the public.

Canadians rely on oil and natural gas to warm their homes and fuel their businesses. They expect the pipeline industry to deliver the energy products they need, when they need it. CEPA members go to great lengths to ensure they’re ready to deliver on that promise safely and responsibly.
