Reaching global markets
The Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion project is our chance to foster new relationships in the global market and get a higher price for our oil. All Canadians will benefit from opening up new markets for our energy resources.
Why is Canada expanding the Trans Mountain Pipeline?
Gaining new customers helps Canada
Having one customer forces us to sell our energy resources at a discounted price, which means less money for what’s important to all Canadians – health care, schools, roads, public transit and hospitals.
While the U.S. will continue to be the largest customer for Canadian oil, our southern neighbour is producing more and more oil domestically. That makes it a less reliable market.
Depending on a single customer is not a smart way for any industry to operate.
