Is there a charge for using the online moving request form?

As noted in the form, there is an application fee when transferring an account or opening a new account. This fee will appear on your first bill. There is no extra charge for using the online moving request form.

What type of identification do I need?

If you're a residential customer, you'll need to provide either a driver's licence number, BC identification number or passport number. The account holder's birthdate is also required.

Business customers need to provide their business identification number.

What is the difference between a residential and business account?

If the energy consumption at the premise is primarily for residential use it would be a residential account. Buildings used for business purposes (e.g. an office, retail store or restaurant) would have a business account.

What if I have both a natural gas and electricity account with FortisBC?

You'll need to complete the online moving request form for each account separately.

Will I receive an email confirmation after completing the online form?

Yes, you'll receive an automated email when you submit your request so it's important to ensure your email address has been entered correctly.

If you'd like a copy of the information you entered, we recommend printing the confirmation page before submitting your moving request form.

Can I cancel my request once I've started filling out the online form?

Yes. There is a cancel option included in each step of the process so you can cancel any time before submitting your request.
