this is a completely noob question i know.
i have been living abroad for awhile and am coming back to toronto, before i left i was still living with parents but when i return i'll be looking for my own place and i am trying to do a basic budget at this poiint.
can anyone explain how utilities work here,
what companies provide each utility (electric, water, gas). is there competition between private companies or is all utilities just paid through the city/province? and do you have to pay for garbage pickup?
i'm aware to stear clear of bell and robbers, will probably just go with teksavvy for internet and not bother with telly or homephone at all.
