Preparing for Canada’s energy future – François Poirier, TC Energy

François Poirier and his co-workers see themselves as problem-solvers.

The problems are many, and familiar to anyone who follows North America’s energy industry. 

  • The need to reduce emissions from traditional energy sources like oil and natural gas. 
  • The need to transition to lower-carbon sources without raising prices for consumers. 
  • The need for energy security in a world that is increasingly unpredictable.

It’s a tall order, but Poirier – President and CEO of Calgary-based TC Energy – is optimistic that his company and others in the industry can meet the challenge. Not only that, he’s convinced that Canada can play an outsized role in solving the world’s energy problems. 

In a conversation with Goldy Hyder in the Speaking of Business podcast, Poirier points to Canada’s natural resources, private sector leadership and energy expertise as key ingredients that can help countries around the world lower greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, Poirier says Canada’s energy sector has a lot to contribute to a coordinated North American energy strategy. “It's through collaboration, cooperation, and commerce that North America can underpin the security and the prosperity of billions of people,” he says.

In a wide-ranging conversation, Poirier also explains why mental wellness is a priority at TC Energy, why he enjoys competing in triathlons, and what career advice he’s shared with his two sons.
