Hiawatha First Nation

Bringing natural gas to your community

We are bringing natural gas to the Hiawatha community. Depending on the existing fuel source, households can save up to 51% each year on home and water heating by switching to natural gas. Households that qualify for the province’s First Nations On-Reserve Delivery Credit have seen the delivery charges for electricity removed from their hydro bills.

Every business has its own unique energy needs, for a personalized estimate, for a personalized estimate on how much you can save by switching to natural gas email savewithgas@enbridge.com and we will let you know!

Ontario Energy Board review and approval is required before the project can proceed. The proposed pipeline routing below is subject to change during the design and execution phases of the project. Check back often for the latest information about the project and start saving!

About the project

This project includes the construction of approximately 15 km of natural gas pipeline, and a station to total an estimated cost of $5 million, made possible by:

  • A $1/ month contribution from new and existing natural gas utility customers in Ontario, which was implemented on July 1, 2019.
  • A system expansion surcharge cents per cubic metre of natural gas used will apply to all customers who connect to the community expansion pipe until the end of the 40 year term.

    For example if a residential home used 500 m3 of natural gas per month this charge would be $0.23m3 x 500m3 = $115/month

    The SES is typically higher in the winter months when the heating system is in use vs summer months.
