TransCanada's mission is to provide reliable supplies of energy across the continent, safely and responsibly. We are proud that millions of people can depend on us for the energy they need each day. Most people don't know who we are. But we're there every day delivering and, in some cases, generating, the energy that's so essential to heat homes, fuel businesses, and keep the lights on. While the name is TransCanada, the company is truly a North American entity with a significant presence in the United States. TransCanada has more than 1,600 full-time employees in 33 states.
TransCanada has 10 wholly or partially owned pipelines in the United States, totalling more than 16,000 miles. The company owns and operates five power generation facilities. Keeping these assets running safely and efficiently is a daily focus, and TransCanada has an outstanding track record. TransCanada designs, constructs and operates its facilities in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations to minimize risks to employees, the public and the environment. For more than 60 years, TransCanada's safety programs and operational procedures have protected the public and the environment.
