2017 Smellfie Contest Winners

The Enbridge Gas Smellfie booth was at popular events across Ontario throughout 2017. We had a great time educating everyone about natural gas safety. We asked people to take a picture of their face reacting to the awful smell of natural gas - this was their Smellfie. The contest* ended on November 30, 2017. Thank you to everyone that entered. 

Congratulations to the ten winners of our 2017 contest who each won $500: Halima Wilson, Claudia Garcia, Carroll Malkin, Maja Ivankovic, Lindsay Harrison, Nancy Trinh, Dietrich Reisinger, Cassie Penny, Rayana Yama and Dorothy Moy.

You can check out all the entries in our Flickr photo gallery.

Do You Know What Natural Gas Smells Like?

In its pure state, natural gas is odourless – for your safety, we add an odourant called mercaptan, to give it a distinctive rotten egg or sulphur like odour. If you smell natural gas inside or outside, act quickly and remain calm. Go outside or leave the area immediately and call our 24-hour Emergency Number: 1-866-763-5427. We provide free emergency response 24/7. Visit our smell of gas page to learn more important safety precautions.

Every October we include a natural gas Scratch ‘n Sniff brochure with customers’ bills. If you are a paperless billing customer or are looking for additional brochures, you can request free brochures by emailing us your name, mailing address and the quantity you would like to receive.
