our history

Our story began in 1880, when 16 refiners in southwestern Ontario created The Imperial Oil Company, Limited. Today, we operate from coast to coast and are best known for our familiar brand names: Esso and Mobil. We make the products that drive modern transportation, power cities, lubricate industries and provide petrochemical building blocks for thousands of consumer goods.
