History:
TransCanada PipeLines Limited is a leading North American energy company, focused on natural gas transmission and power services. Our network of about 38,000 kilometres (23,600 miles) of pipeline transports the majority of western Canada's natural gas production to the fastest growing markets in Canada and the United States. TransCanada also owns, controls, or has under construction about 2,250 megawatts of power - enough to meet the needs of more than two million average households.

Our story began in 1951 with the development of the Canadian Mainline. Today we have grown into one of North America's leading energy companies.
