Utility rates and payment options

The City of Airdrie offers a number of payment options. Choose the option that is right for you and return your payment by the date specified on your bill.

  1. Online payment:


  2. Pre-authorized payment plan: Your pre-authorized payment will be withdrawn on the due date of each bill.  This date will vary - It is based on the date your water meter is read. 
  3. Pre-authorized budget payment plan: A preset amount will be withdrawn from your bank account on the last day of each month, rather than the full amount on the due date.
  4. Online or telephone banking: Most banking institutions have the City of Airdrie listed for making payments via the Internet or telephone banking. You can set up your payments through the following banking institutions: ATB, BMO, CIBC, Credit Union, HKBC, RBC, Scotia and TD Canada Trust. Please be sure to use all eight digits of your account number without the decimal point. Payments are usually received and processed by the City within two to three business days.
  5. In-person at most banks and financial institutions: Payment can be made at the bank through the tellers or at an Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Please note it can take up to two weeks to process payments made through an ATM as it goes to the clearing centre in Calgary to be sorted before it is sent to the City of Airdrie.
  6. By mail: Be sure to include your bill stub or account number. Do not mail cash. Please make cheques payable to the City of Airdrie.
