CALGARY, Alta. — Enbridge Inc. announced that in collaboration with the Government of Ontario it is expanding natural gas access to rural, northern and Indigenous communities in Ontario, Canada.

Enbridge will access Ontario’s Natural Gas Expansion Program to support 27 projects to expand natural gas access across the province, helping to keep the cost of energy low for families, businesses and farmers.

The average household could save up to 50 percent in energy costs by switching to natural gas from costlier fuel sources, and businesses could save up to 30 per cent on energy costs per year. These important impacts are made possible through the ongoing support of the Government of Ontario and Enbridge’s ongoing work with local communities.

“We’re excited that Enbridge is bringing much-needed natural gas service to additional communities while supporting jobs and providing energy savings to residents and businesses,” said Cynthia Hansen, Enbridge Executive Vice-President and President of Enbridge Gas Distribution and Storage, in a prepared statement. “We are pleased that the Government of Ontario selected these projects and look forward to working together with the province and local municipalities to continue to bring natural gas to more Ontario homes and businesses.”
