We're up for any challenge. Are you?
Delivering energy across North America safely, responsibly and reliably takes a skilled hands-on team. Our Canadian operations employees make sure we deliver natural gas day-in and day-out to millions of people who count on TransCanada for the energy that powers our world. Our values of safety, integrity, responsibility and collaboration guide how we work with one another – and how we work with external partners who are affected by our operations.

Over the last seven decades, we’ve proven how our diverse workforce can deliver creative solutions to society’s energy challenges. For example, last year, our multigenerational workforce in the Canadian Gas Operations team took one frontline technician’s “crazy” idea to run a PIG (Pipeline Inspection Gauge) almost 1,000 km and set a North American record and a new standard for natural gas pipeline inspections.

TransCanada provides opportunities to:
• Grow your skills and build your career for the long term
