On March 18th Premier Jason Kenney announced that Alberta gas and electricity consumers in need will be able to defer their utility bill payments for up to 90 days.
Albertans who are experiencing financial hardship directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic can work with their utility company to defer electricity and natural gas bills until June 19, 2020 without any late fees or added interest payments.
The deferral program is designed to provide temporary financial relief. Payments will be required at the conclusion of the deferral period, but consumers will not be required to pay for the entirety of the deferral on June 19.
To arrange for a deferral and repayment plan, contact your natural gas or electricity provider directly.
Individuals, families and businesses can defer utility payments until June 19, 2020 to lessen financial burden associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
