New rate structure based on housing type

In previous years, all residents paid the same flat rate for water and sewer services regardless of housing type. Starting in 2022, rates are now determined using a tiered structure, with different rates depending on the type of housing you live in. This change was introduced by City Council with the goal of distributing costs in a more equitable way.

The tiered structure means some residents will pay less and some will pay more, depending on housing type. Although the number of people per household can vary, changes to rates were determined based on the estimated average number of occupants for each housing type. See the rates for each housing type in the tables below under Water and sewer rates by housing type.

Council has also created a new, discounted classification for not-for-profit organizations (previously limited to churches) operating in Port Moody and set water and sewer rates for housing run by non-governmental organizations to be in the lowest tier (along with secondary suites and laneway homes).

Do you have a question about the new, tiered rate structure for water and sewer services? See our frequently asked questions (FAQs).
