Making sure communities are engaged and respected comes naturally for us — it’s how we do business. Sharing our plans and ideas with families and supporting communities lead to better outcomes for everyone involved.
Our values of safety, integrity, responsibility and collaboration lay the foundation for how we work with one another, but most importantly, with you.
Youth truly are the future. And when it comes to TransCanada, they're our future engineers, welders, environmentalists, teachers, community leaders and more. Whether you're training to be a tradesperson, scientist, entrepreneur or community leader, we have scholarships you can apply for.
Our 2018 applications have now closed. Applications will reopen in January, 2019. We look forward to you applying at that time!
