Demand for Natural Gas on the Rise as Ontario Expands Access

Natural gas is the most common heating source in Ontario and is more affordable than other sources, such as electricity, oil or propane. Demand for natural gas in Canada is driven primarily by industrial users. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producer (CAPP) estimates that Canadians consumed 9.1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas in 2017. Demand for natural gas varies due to weather, economic growth, market conditions such as prices, regulatory changes, and infrastructure constraints. Currently, the supply of natural gas exceeds domestic demand, creating the opportunity for exports (currently only to the United States) and Canadian jobs.
