Canadian Prosperity Project, also known as CP3, was a proposed oil pipeline project in Canada which is now presumed shelved.[1][2]


The pipeline is proposed to run from Hardisty, Alberta to Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.[1] It would pass through Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec en route to a marine tanker terminal in New Brunswick.[2]

The project was proposed in late 2019 on the heels of the cancelled Energy East Oil Pipeline.[2]

As of early 2023, the developer's old website ( was not being maintained, and no development had been reported on the project for over two years. As a result, it is considered shelved as of 2021.

In addition, the developer's website now redirects to Canada ProsperUnity Corporation, which plans to establish a national corridor which will include" a new mid-Canada highway, a new rail system, an inter-connected and vastly upgraded power grid, a clean energy (ammonia, hydrogen and/or natural gas) transmission system and a modern digital telecommunications system."[3]It does not mention any pipeline project as of February 2023.
