Who We Are
The Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops Ltd. is a not-for-profit umbrella organization, based in Sherwood Park, AB with
The Federation is governed by an eight member elected board of directors chosen from member utilities in eight zones across Alberta. This board sets policies and implement strategies on behalf of the membership. The membership attends Annual General Meetings to vote on matters important to the Federation as a whole.
The Federation provides centralized services that are difficult for utlities to do on their own, such as: training, government relations, insurance, employee and director benefits and pension, odorant delivery, retail billing, and gas measurement to name a few.
Most Federation Member Utilities are shareholders in Gas Alberta Inc., a private corporation with the mandate to aggregate natural gas supply for resale back to its shareholders.
The Rural Gas Progam was started in 1973 by the Province of Alberta to ensure any Albertan could have access to natural gas. Under this program, the Rural Utilities Division of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development is responsible for ensuring the safe and orderly development of gas distribution systems. It manages a grant program to help install gas pipelines to new homes and businesses in rural areas.
Any person or business within a gas co-op franchise area may sign a gas contract and purchase a membership for a one time fee, usually only $1.00. This membership gives you the right to have a voice in your local co-op. If you are a member in good standing of your gas co-op, you have a right to vote at the co-ops Annual General Meeting and to run for election to the Board of Directors.
