Where in Canada are you from, I was born in Nova Scotia, and we do alot of camping in Ontario and New Brunswick.
For our bills (electric and gas) we got on the budget billing program, which is good, same payment year round and then credited for excess non usage.

Are you able to change any of your utilities to gas?We live in Canada
and we find it cheaper than electricity.We had all electric 30 years
agoand even then,it was too much.We have a wood burning fireplace,but we
don’t use it unless it’s really cold,but it helps.Our house is 2100
sq.ft. and our kids left last fall,so it took 2 months to notice a
difference and our kids used a lot of water and
other utilities.You don’t realize until they leave how much they used.I
think we pay more in Canada for our utilities from what I have seen of
what Americans pay.We may have the health benefit here,but we pay dearly
for everything else.We have such long times for surgery here,my husband
waited over a year for gallbladder surgery and he was so sick.Chris
