The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) represents Canada’s transmission pipeline companies who operate approximately 119,000 kilometres of pipeline in Canada and 14,000 kilometres in the United States. CEPA members move approximately 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas each year.
CEPA’s mission is to continually enhance the operating excellence, business environment and recognized responsibility of the Canadian energy transmission pipeline industry through leadership and credible engagement between member companies, governments, the public and stakeholders. Our members’ relationships with Indigenous groups are a critical component to operationalizing this mission. These relationships span the entire country and continue to evolve as aspirations regarding reconciliation become reality. As leaders in the transportation of energy we recognize the value in building and maintaining mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with Indigenous groups through principled approaches to Indigenous relations.
