Candice Paton

VP, Corporate Affairs
Enhance Energy Inc.

Candice is the Vice President Corporate Affairs at Enhance, an Alberta-based carbon utilization and storage company with extensive experience in the planning and implementation of large-scale carbon capture and utilization projects (CCS) that permanently sequester CO2 emissions. She has over 15 years of experience in technology development and innovation in energy systems.

Candice is passionate about energy technologies, environmental performance and impact in communities. She holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and a M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering and is registered as a Professional Engineer with APEGA. 

Her connection with the EFL began in 2017 when she joined as a Fellow and she continues to connect as an Ambassador since 2022.

She is a recognized thought leader in her community and founded the Alberta Carbon Hub – a project designed to highlight the innovative steps Alberta companies are taking to solve climate change. She regularly volunteers with youth education opportunities like the Ten Peaks Innovation Alliance and Inside Education.

I am excited to see CCUS as a technology that lands in Alberta and Canada in a big way, but the opportunity to shape how this is done in a collaborative, inclusive and transparent way is something that the Lab has a big opportunity to influence.
