Recognizing our Retail and Wholesale Associates of the Year

Our associates provide great service, products and expertise to their customers as well as support and leadership to their teams, and we want to make sure this excellence is recognized. As a way to celebrate their accomplishments with all associates across the country, we recently held our annual red carpet event, the Associate of the Year Awards. Of course, this year our event was virtual, but no less important.

RETAIL ASSOCIATES

We have over 800 Retail associates at 1700+ sites across the country. This year, 55 Associates were nominated and we had eight winners across our different regions. They are:

Daljit Minhas
Calgary, Alberta

“Petro-Canada associates are leaders in our industry. To be recognized among them is a great honour and motivation for me.”

“Being an Associate of the Year nominee is an honor for which myself and my entire team are very proud. Although it is very cliché, in my case it is very true, it should be ‘Team of the Year!’”
