A Canadian energy firm is set to invest around CAD600 million (£381.7 million) to meet the nation’s growing gas demand.

Enbridge, Canada’s largest gas distributor, will upgrade its pipeline in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to benefit from the “strong population growth” whilst continuing the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to its consumers.

Guy Jarvis, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution said: “The proposed upgrade project will enable us to serve current and anticipated growth in our customers’ needs, enhance our flexibility to avoid customer impacts due to disruption of physical supply and provide options to access additional supply sources for our customers.”

The energy supplier, which provides gas to more than 1.9 million customers, will submit the project for approval by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) in the coming months.
