Progress Continues on Canada’s Electric Highway
A Checklist for Getting Your Vehicle Winter-Ready

Ten Years Later and Still Going Strong

Earlier this year we celebrated the ten-year anniversary of the Petro-Canada and Suncor merger and the creation of Canada’s leading energy company. Over the years there have been a number of achievements that we’re proud of as an organization. Our colleagues over at Suncor’s Together blog compiled a broad selection of achievements that we’ve accomplished through the combining of our strengths. Here on PumpTalk, we wanted to highlight a few that are likely to be of interest to our readers.

Supporting the Olympic and Paralympic Movement:
Since 1988, through the Fuelling Athletes and Coaching Excellence (FACETM) program, we have supported more than 3,000 Canadian athletes and coaches by providing more than $11 million in financial support. And we’re continuing our support as a National Partner of the Canadian Olympic Committee and a premier partner of the Canadian Paralympic Committee through the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Petro-Canada EV FlagBuilding Canada’s Electric Highway™:
Our planned coast-to-coast network of electric vehicle charging stations that will span more than 50 Petro-Canada locations along the Trans-Canada highway helps Canadians get where they want to go. Each station, nine of which are already up and running, will be equipped with DC fast chargers featuring dual CHAdeMO and CCS/SAE connectors, which can provide up to a 200kW charge – enough to provide a full charge to most electric vehicles in less than 30 minutes.

Partnering with Indigenous Businesses:
Petro-Canada is proud that our partnerships with Indigenous businesses have continued and grown since the merger with Suncor. In 2017, Suncor purchased a 41 per cent equity interest in PetroNor, a petroleum products distributor across the James Bay and Abitibi-Témiscamingue regions of Quebec for whom Petro-Canada is the exclusive supplier of fuel and distillate. And on the retail side of our business, as of September 2019, there are 35 Petro-Canada branded retail sites owned and operated by First Nations across Canada.

We’re really looking forward to the next 10 years and helping Canadians get to what matters most. Thank you for being part of our journey!
