Safety Aspect

Decades of safe cohabitation with gas lines 

There are currently close to 366,000 kilometres of natural gas lines in Canada. Gas transmission lines alone span nearly 100,000 kilometres, three times the length of the Canadian highway system. 

In fact, in many towns and cities across the country, natural gas transmission and distribution lines are located underground, unnoticed, and people have been living safely for decades alongside this infrastructure. 

Furthermore, in addition to the regulatory and industry standards in place, there is a close collaboration with first responders in communities crossed by the natural gas lines to ensure the efficiency of emergency services, if required.
