YPAC’s Mission is to
- Facilitate passing technical/engineering knowledge from mature to young pipeliners, and, as a result, build a positive future for Canada’s pipeline industry.
- Provide opportunities for young individuals to learn the breadth and depth of the industry.
- Be a Canada-wide network of pipeline professionals focused on attracting and retaining young people to this industry.
Young Pipeliners Association of Canada (YPAC) was brought up by pipeline industry veterans who were concerns with the longevity and skills gap of the industry. YPAC work to educate and engage young Canadians interested in the pipeline industry by: promoting the pipeline industry, upholding safe and reliable operations in the pipeline industry, providing networking opportunities between other pipelining peers, and assisting the pipeline industry in educating the public on the necessity of the pipeline industry.
