What Matters to you, Matters to us

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.

Strengthening Communities

Being a good neighbour is part of who we are and what we do. At TransCanada, we do more than just deliver the energy that millions of people across North America rely on every day. We know that long-term success depends on our ability to balance safety, profitability, and social and environmental responsibility. When we get that balance right, the communities where we operate benefit from our presence.

Learn more about the many ways we work to strengthen and support the communities we work in.

Our Commitment to the Economy

We truly become part of the communities where we operate, and offer affordable energy and economic benefits. Benefits like property taxes paid to local governments, investments in causes that help local communities thrive, and of course, employment opportunities.

Funding Communities through Taxes

At TransCanada, we do a whole lot more than just deliver energy – we’re happy to play a role in making communities better places to live. In 2017, TransCanada’s direct economic contributions included $816 million in cash and property taxes. Our operations generated $247 million in cash taxes, plus an additional $569 million in local property taxes. That money goes to help communities fund everything from schools to hospitals, roads, public parks and more.
