The Federation is contracted by the Province of Alberta to administer the Rural Gas Grant. This grant provides funding to gas utilities to help keep the installation of gas services affordable for rural homes.
Our partners include Gas Alberta Inc. and the government’s Rural Gas Program. 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 Program was started in 1973 by the Province of Alberta to help ensure Albertans could have access to natural gas.
