Utilities and pipelines are a mixed sector that encompass electrical generation and service utilities and gas tranportation companies

Utilities are often seen as the safest, least cyclical stocks on the market. Canadians and those of other nationalities will always have demand for electricity, natural gas and other heating oils. Due to this, utility stocks are often some of the most stable companies on the TSX and other exchanges.

Investing in Utilities can be very rewarding to income investors. If some kind of dividend reinvestment strategy is employed, some people have suggested that safe investments like these are the best in the industry.

Some utilities are powered by various diverse generation methods including: hydroelectric, natural gas, oil, coal, petrol, nuclear materials, wind, solar, geothermal, tidal.

Canadian utilites like enbridge may provide services nation wide and internationally, but most service regions like Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario, Western Canada, British Columbia or the north.

Again, diversified utilities - generally the larger ones - engage in generation, tranmission, storage, delivery, billing, customer service and all other aspects of utility service including sometimes exploration and resource extraction (see oil and gas or energy services sectors). But, as stated previously, most do not engage in all of these activities, but instead focus on one or two to specific regions.

Pipelines, on the other hand, specialize in the construction and transportation of oil and gas across the countriside. These specialists are employed in the industry to build and maintain transportation methods for fossil fuels generated by other Canadian companies.

Below is a complete list of the TSX utility and pipeline stocks that are available in Canada.
