Interactive Pipeline Map
We have a vast network of pipelines in Canada that transport millions of litres of oil and gas every day. Any pipeline that crosses a provincial or international border falls under the federal regulation of the CER.
What this map shows
The map below shows the location of pipelines and data we have been collecting on incidents since 2008 that were reported to us under the Onshore Pipeline Regulations and Processing Plant Regulations. The pipeline data shown represents the majority of federally regulated pipelines (about 90% of operating pipelines as of March 2017). The map will be updated to show additional pipelines as more digital location data becomes available.
A number of terms we use in our illustrations and graphics are common in industry and have specific meanings. Learn more in our glossary for this section.
