Who are gas marketers?

Gas marketers are licensed independent gas retailers that are separate from FortisBC. Although the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) oversees their activities, it does not regulate the prices they offer. Gas marketers are free to offer different prices and terms to each customer.

The Customer Choice program offers customers the opportunity to decide whether a fixed rate is right for them and if so, which gas marketer’s offer best suits their needs.
