Illustration of rates pamphlet

The Ontario Energy Board has approved changes to the rates Union Gas charges its customers effective January 1, 2018. The new rates will be charged beginning February 1, 2018. Your February bill uses the new rates which incorporate applicable temporary charges that do not affect the annual impacts listed below.

The total annual bill increase will be $10.84 for a typical Rate 01—North West customer using 2,200 m3 of natural gas a year.

Note that this rate change recovers the costs related to delivering natural gas to you. These new and approved rates replace the rates communicated in the January 2018 rate notice you recently received.
