All gas lines or any installation of a gas appliance in Calgary requires a gas permit. In Calgary, a homeowner cannot take out a gas permit. It can only be taken out by a master gas fitter. The gas fitter must have 6-7 years of experience to become a master gas fitter. After the job is completed, an inspector will come out to look at the installation, usually the following business day. Out of town, different towns and municipalities have different rules and inspection authorities.

Enbridge, Canada’s largest natural gas distribution company, suggests always using a registered heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) contractor to install your natural gas barbecue with good reason. The risks of making a mistake outweigh the costs associated with hiring a professional.

Always call before you dig – it’s the law. If you plan on building a deck, fence or doing any digging, the law requires you to contact Ontario One Call to request free locates of underground pipes and cables before you start. Contact them at least one week in advance. Call 1-800-400-2255 or submit your request online. Damage to a natural gas line can result in a gas leak, fire or explosion or could cut off utility service to an entire neighbourhood. Anyone who causes damage will need to pay for repairs. They may also need to deal with an expensive lawsuit if anyone is hurt or nearby property is damaged. Even with locations, it’s important that you or your licensed contractor follow safe digging practices.
