For well over 60 years, the Mainline system has been the backbone of Enbridge’s Liquids Pipelines operations. Stretching from Edmonton to Superior, Wis., and crossing the international border at Gretna, Man., the Mainline system stretches for 1,098 miles (1,757 kilometres) and allows Enbridge to transport 65 per cent of Western Canada’s crude exports.

For more than 60 years, we’ve also been an integral component of the towns and cities near the Mainline right-of-way. At Enbridge, we believe in strengthening the communities where we live, work, and play. And as we continue project and maintenance work along the Mainline right-of-way, we’re proud to say that we will continue to deliver on our promise – making communities near our projects and operations better places to live – well into the future.

"Within 69 minutes of arriving at our door, the cardiac team was placing stents in his heart, and saved his life," says Penny Echternach, the Executive Director of the Sanford Health Foundation of Northern Minnesota.

This cardiac care unit and a state-of-the-art robotic surgical console are two key advances realized through Sanford’s Together. For Life campaign, funded through partnerships with donors like Enbridge.
