Frequently Asked Questions

Am I still responsible for paying my Hydro Ottawa bill on time during the postal disruption?

Yes, even during the postal disruption you are still responsible for keeping your electricity account up to date to avoid late payment charges. There are many options available to pay your bill:

  • Automated payment plans where the amount due will be withdrawn from your bank account on the due date
