TransCanada Community Investment

At TransCanada we don’t just build energy infrastructure; we also build relationships.

Whether it’s partnering with community groups, supporting local initiatives or encouraging our employees to be involved in their neighbourhoods, our goal is to build strong and vibrant communities across North America. Giving back to the communities where we operate is part of our everyday culture and has been for over 60 years. It’s all part of being an employer of choice, a good neighbour and a trusted community partner.

Education

School Is Expensive, We Can Help
Whether starting university or college for the first time, or returning to school to learn a new trade, paying for education can be challenging, especially when costs can vary from $5,000 to $50,000 per year. That’s one of the reasons why we launched the TransCanada Community Scholarships Program last year — to help students from the communities where we live, work and operate across North America reach their academic goals.

Saskatchewan Brothers' Clothing Company Rooted in Passion for Forestry
Brothers Kalen and Derrick Emsley are not even 30 years old and already their lives have taken them across the country and around the world. As the founders of tentree, their journey took them from their hometown of Regina, Sask. to the corporate oil and gas city of Calgary and most recently, to the creative design and apparel hub of Vancouver. The pair have had their share of bumps along the way – but their passion to make a positive impact on the environment has been the defining theme of their journey. TransCanada is proud to have played a role in their success.
