What are we about?

YPAC Pipeline Conference and Tradeshow 2017 is for everyone interested in developing and growing young pipeliners across Canada. This includes anyone who works within the pipeline space: academics, industry, regulators and government.

The theme of the conference is BUILDING TRUST.  Together we will discover ways to strengthen the trust in pipelines – starting with senior pipeliners and ending with young pipeliners.

At this conference, you will learn about the various programs and projects that companies are implementing to improve stakeholder engagement within the pipeline project life-cycle and how we can responsibly take into consideration the various dynamic facets of pipeline development.

The conference is specifically focused on the growth and development of young professionals within the pipeline industry. Learn from peers and industry experts about the past, present and future of the industry. Distinguished senior and junior industry members will be in attendance. The conference attracts the next generation of thinkers and leaders who currently are usually making tactical and operational decisions. Senior leaders will be in attendance to share their knowledge and network with the younger generation.

The previous 2015 version of the conference was completely sold out with representation from all levels of the pipeline space.  We anticipate another sold out conference.
