For a company that operates in three countries across multiple provinces and states, diversity is all in a day’s work. Our experience has shown that a diverse workforce drives innovation, facilitates collaboration and sustains continued growth.

It’s simple: When we work together and respect one another, we work smarter. We’re proud to say that when people join TransCanada, they find a supportive workplace where their opinions and values are recognized and celebrated — each and every day.

Experience and commitment

When you make what you do matter, great things happen. Our employees know that when they come to work at TransCanada, they’re helping deliver the energy North American families, businesses and communities need to reach their full potential.

As a TransCanada employee, you have the opportunity to grow your career with us via on-the-job experiences, exposure to peers and leaders, and formal training.

We take pride in fostering our employees’ growth and development so they too can reach their full potential, and feel a sense of accomplishment.

One company

At TransCanada, the mantra “One Company” highlights our focus on creating a unifying culture across our operations. This includes supporting employee contributions and requiring that all new employees complete diversity training within 30 days of starting on the job.

We also believe a job well done deserves recognition. Experience has taught us that frequent and genuine acknowledgment motivates our people and strengthens relationships, contributing to our shared success.

Safety and stability

Nothing is more important than the safe operation of our pipelines, storage and power-generation facilities. With 60% of our employees in maintenance and operations, ensuring everyone makes it home to their families after a day’s work is our goal.

Amazingly, in 2009 alone, roughly 1,800 Operations and Engineering employees recorded zero lost-time injuries for the second time in four years. Considering nearly 3.5 million work hours were logged that year, it’s quite an impressive feat.
