CAPP Statement on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project

May 1, 2024 (Calgary, Alberta) 

“The completion of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project promises to deliver economic, social, and geopolitical benefits to Canada.

With improved access to global markets, Canadians can look forward to receiving higher value for our energy resources, meaning more money coming back into the economy. This contributes to our GDP, which enhances every Canadian’s buying power and quality of living standards – not to mention supporting more government revenues, jobs and opportunities for Canadians to prosper.

The project also excelled in its commitment to meaningful public engagement and Indigenous participation. The project employed over 3,000 Indigenous workers, nearly $5 billion was spent with Indigenous suppliers and contractors, and has delivered more than $580 million in benefits-sharing arrangements with 69 Indigenous communities.

As the world undergoes rapid and sometimes violent geopolitical realignments, safe and reliable oil and gas supplies will be a priority for governments for years to come. The completion of the Trans Mountain Expansion will help Canada play an enduring strategic role in ensuring our allies and trading partners have access to a reliable and trusted source of critical energy.”

  • Lisa Baiton, CAPP President and CEO
