Call Before You Dig

Before you dig or excavate on your property, call Ontario One Call – it’s the law!

“The Ontario Underground Infrastructure Notification Act, 2012” requires anyone undertaking a dig or excavation to call Ontario One Call to locate and identify all underground utilities within the dig area.

Requests to identify and find the location of underground infrastructure are free and can be made by calling 1-800-400-2255.

Homeowners or contractors who fail to call Ontario One Call put themselves and their neighbours at risk of serious injury or death because they do not know the location of underground infrastructure. Hitting a gas line poses a dangerous risk to our communities.

Last year, more than 250 gas line damages were reported to Enbridge Gas Distribution because of unsafe excavation practices. This includes homeowners who did not phone Ontario One Call to locate and identify underground utilities.

To protect us all, make the call.
