Why Syncrude

There’s a certain something about our people that sets them apart. It’s an energy. A drive that streams through our offices, out to our work sites and into our neighbourhoods. It’s what drives us to be leaders in our industry, involved in our community and one of Canada’s most respected workplaces.

If you’re like us, you want a rewarding career opportunity, a workplace where people are engaged, respectful and seeking a better way, plus time to do the things you enjoy outside of work. That’s what we call our Syncrude side.

The very thing that makes Syncrude a great place to work is the same thing that makes Fort McMurray a great place to live. The people. Our community is renowned for its friendliness, diversity and hospitality—it’s the ideal place to start or grow your career, raise a family and enjoy everything the community has to offer.


Syncrude has a long and proud history in the oil sands industry of Alberta. With more than 55 years of responsible development, we’re known for pioneering many of the industry’s enabling technologies, being a leading contributor to things that make a great quality of life in the Wood Buffalo region, and being a great place to work.

Yet that’s only the beginning of our story. We have a long and bright future ahead, and to meet our ambitious goal to responsibly secure Canada’s energy future we need people like you in our organization.  We’re seeking people who want to contribute to our success.  If that’s you, check out our career opportunities.
