As the GTA continues to grow, demands for energy such as natural gas also grow. In order to meet the demands of growth in the GTA and continue the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to current and future customers, Enbridge will be upgrading the backbone of its existing natural gas distribution system.
The GTA Project will upgrade the existing distribution system that currently delivers natural gas to Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, and Toronto.
Enbridge submitted a "Leave to Construct" application on December 21, 2012 to the OEB to obtain permission to build the project. After a year-long regulatory review process under the OEB, Enbridge received approval to proceed with the project on January 30, 2014.
The GTA Project has a western component, referred to as Segment A, and an eastern component, referred to as Segment B.
