Twenty-four years strong, the PSAC STARS and Spurs Gala has been bringing together industry leaders to celebrate the hard work and dedication of Albertans with a Western themed night of great food, dancing, and live entertainment. It’s the Way of the West. Hosted by the Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC) in support of STARS Air Ambulance.


The Petroleum Services Association of Canada is the national trade association representing the service, supply and manufacturing sectors within the upstream petroleum industry. As the voice of Canada’s petroleum service, supply and manufacturing sector, PSAC advocates for its members to enable the continued innovation, technological advancement and in-the-field experience they supply to Canada’s energy explorers and producers, helping to increase efficiency, improve safety and protect the environment.

PSAC is proud to partner with STARS to host the annual PSAC Stars and Spurs Gala. While the petroleum services sector always operates as safely as possible, it’s great to know that in case of an emergency, STARS is only a phone call away. That is why PSAC has helped to raise over $15 million for STARS over the past 24 years.
