Trans Mountain Corporation operates Canada's only pipeline system transporting oil products to the West Coast. We deliver nearly 300,000 barrels of petroleum products each day through 1,150 kilometres of pipeline in Alberta and British Columbia, and 111 kilometres of pipeline in Washington state.
The Trans Mountain Expansion Project will provide increased capacity to support Canadian crude oil production growth and ensure access to global energy markets. The largest project in the pipelines history, it involves installing approximately 980 kilometres of new pipeline, new and modified facilities including pump stations and terminals, and a new dock complex at the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, British Columbia.
As a federal Crown corporation, Trans Mountain Corporation will continue to build upon Trans Mountains more than 65 years of experience delivering operational and safety excellence through our crude oil pipeline system. The original Trans Mountain Pipeline was built in 1953 and continues to operate safely today.
Work is well underway with pipe in the ground and terminal construction in Alberta, and significant work ongoing at the Burnaby and Westridge Marine Terminals in British Columbia. Before the end of 2020, construction is expected to be underway across the entire line, including many communities in the Lower Mainland. The Project is on schedule to be in-service by the end of December 2022* subject to change.
Trans Mountains overall goal is to construct the pipeline in a manner that minimizes impacts to residents, community and the environment. Safety of the people, our assets and protection of the environment are our number one priority.

Community Benefit Agreements
Through Trans Mountain’s Community Benefits Program, we’ve announced 21 agreements with local governments along more than 95 per cent of the pipeline route that will provide more than $10 million in funds to help with a variety of locally determined projects. These agreements are signed with communities impacted by construction of the Expansion Project. The funds help to compensate for public inconvenience and temporary disruption caused during construction. These projects include education and training opportunities, infrastructure improvements and park and trail improvement projects.
The City of Abbotsford was the first community along the Trans Mountain pipeline corridor in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland region to sign a Community Benefit Agreement.
