Pre-Authorized Utility Payment Plan (PUPP)

PUPP is a convenient way for residents to pay their utility bills through direct debit from their bank accounts. You can sign up for a pre-authorized payment plan if your utility account is not in arrears and you have a chequing account at a financial institution.
