We have a goal of zero incidents.
We will get there through Integrity First.
CEPA members share their knowledge and innovations, advancing performance in 10 key areas covering safety, environment and socio-economic contribution. Joining forces to share ideas and technology helps all 11 transmission pipeline companies deliver better.
How Integrity First works
Identify the most important priorities
Priorities such as pipeline integrity management or emergency management are identified through research and feedback
gathered from the public and industry.
Create guidance documents
Experts from CEPA member companies work together to develop a plan, called a guidance document, to guide improvement in each priority area.
Member companies use the guidance document to assess their current systems, processes and practices within the priority area.
Conduct third-party verification
Third-party verification is conducted to increase trust, credibility and consistency of the member companies and industry.
Develop action plan for continuous improvement
Areas of improvement for leading practices are identified and shared among members. Action plans are developed to improve performance.
Report on activity and performance
Members, through Integrity First, regularly report on their activities and performance to increase accountability and transparency with Canadians.
Improving where it counts
Through Integrity First, CEPA members work together to continuously improve their operations in 10 key priority areas that will help us reach our goal of zero incidents.
