Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2024):

Here are some of the reasons why Enbridge Inc. was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2024):

  • Enbridge conducts annual pay equity analyses to help ensure fair pay across gender and ethnicity, as well as additional analyses during performance reviews, leadership development and succession planning to ensure fairness across systems that impact career development -- the company also ran an enterprise-wide inclusion survey in 2022 to better understand how employees feel at work, and will be actioning another survey in 2024

Last year was my first Ramadan with Enbridge. Usually, that time of the year is the toughest while working. However, I was quite pleased to see my organization had sent an informal email with all the details on the religious month prior. My colleagues around me were proactive and inclusive in my lifestyle adjustments during this time which made me feel like I could be more of myself at work. Samira Patel, work management clerk
I was shy, quiet, and uncomfortable sharing my First Nations heritage with anyone at work. I wanted to assimilate, always trying to be someone else and not liking who I was. Being part of and leading the Indigenous Employee Resource Group (IERG) has made me proud, strong, and accepting of my heritage, ancestors, and who I am as a First Nation woman and the first generation in my family not to go to residential school. This has built strength not only in me, but also in my relationship with my father and the way in which my boys are being raised as First Nations. It has enhanced my compassion towards my own people. I cannot state how invaluable the IERG has been in my life. Dana Gray, PDC procurement specialist and IERG Edmonton chapter lead
