Lisa Baiton, President and CEO, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP)

Lisa Baiton was appointed the 6th chief executive of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), the voice of Canada’s upstream oil and natural gas industry, effective May 2, 2022.

Over the course of her 33-year global career, previously Baiton served an eleven-year tenure on the Global Leadership Team of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (“CPP Investments”), one of the ten largest retirement funds in the world. An expert in geopolitical, political and regulatory risks and market access, Baiton led CPP Investments’ global public affairs and advocacy activities across 50+ countries initially as Vice President, Government & Stakeholder Relations (2010-2012), and then as Managing Director & Head of Global Public Affairs (2013-2021).

Baiton was Vice President & Practice Lead, Government Relations for Environics Communications (2004-2010), a North American public affairs firm where she provided executive-level counsel to highly regulated large multinational corporate clients across a broad range of sectors of the economy. She also worked for one of Canada’s largest industry associations, the Canadian Bankers Association, and has held critical leadership roles in three Canadian governments (Saskatchewan, Federal, Ontario) with oversight for the development and implementation of cornerstone legislative and regulatory priorities.

Baiton has a solid understanding of the oil and gas industry, not only from her roles as an institutional investor and policy-maker, but as someone who was born and raised in Swift Current, Saskatchewan to parents who owned a small oilfield trucking, heavy equipment, and earthwork construction company.

Baiton holds a BA in Political Science from the University of Saskatchewan, an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management (Northwestern University) and Schulich School of Business (York University), and has an Institute of Corporate Directors ICD.D certification from the Rotman School of Management (University of Toronto).   

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) represents companies, large and small, that explore for, develop and produce natural gas and crude oil throughout Canada. CAPP’s member companies produce about 85 per cent of Canada’s natural gas and crude oil. CAPP’s associate members provide a wide range of services that support the upstream crude oil and natural gas industry. Together CAPP’s members and associate members are an important part of a national industry with revenues from oil and natural gas production of about $120 billion a year. CAPP’s mission, on behalf of the Canadian upstream oil and gas industry, is to advocate for and enable economic competitiveness and safe, environmentally and socially responsible performance.
