Supporting Our Veterans

Supporting Our Veterans

TransCanada is a proud employer of active and retired military personnel. In fact, we’ve been honored by the Department of Defense for extraordinary support of active duty and military veterans with the Above and Beyond Award. We were also the first recipient of the Statement of Support Award, from the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs, as a way to recognize companies for support of military veterans.

We take pride in supporting the men and women who have made a difference serving our country. Find out how you can help us make a difference.

Helmets to Hardhats Partnership

In 2012, TransCanada announced a $1 million commitment to helping Canadian military veterans and reservists transition to civilian work through the Helmets to Hard Hats (H2H) program. This organization is dedicated to helping veterans make the transition from active duty to meaningful careers in the construction industry, while bringing skilled and dedicated employees into our workforce. It’s this type of commitment that both benefits our veterans and supports important trades within the construction industry.

Supporting A Strong Foundation

TransCanada believes that the members of the Canadian Forces past and present deserve our gratitude, dedication and support to not only help Canadians remember the sacrifices they gave and continue to give, but also to provide opportunities through H2H for their next career. The H2H partnership underlines what TransCanada leaders already know well: Employees with military backgrounds not only possess transferrable hard skills, but they offer strong values and disciplined commitment to the team.
