If you own a condominium, your maintenance may or may not cover utilities. You will need to check your condominium guidelines.

Owned homes

The Ministry of Energy has information and options about reducing utility bills and conserving energy.

Water and wastewater

Lake Ontario provides drinking water to a large part of Peel's population. Clean and refreshing drinking water is available at any tap in the Region of Peel.

Most homes in Peel are connected to the municipal water and wastewater system. Homes that are not connected to Peel’s system use wells for water and septic systems for wastewater.

Your water bill is based on the amount of water supplied to your home or business. This includes water you use for activities such as showering, flushing toilets, washing dishes and outdoor water use.

Reducing Utility Costs

If you have a family, you may use more water, heat and electricity, which can lead to high costs. There are many options to help you reduce your utility bills and help conserve energy.

The Ministry of Energy website has more information about how to reduce your utility bills.
