Just curious why you don't pay for gas and water?

8. I don't have a water meter at home. My water is included in property tax (nominal amount + fixed extra because I have a pool).

I don't have gas at home. No gas service. I use electricity for heating purposes (Electric ductless heat pump + electric baseboard). I am in Quebec.

9. I am in Quebec
oic QC is a different country

10. I think posting \$ values is not useful. I would post consumption numbers for a better comparison.

For example, the average household in Edmonton uses 16.3m3 of water per month. Western European households use 11m3 of water per month.
We've been able to average 12m2 per month of water and in our new house we are substantially lower, under 8m3 per month averaged over the year.

11. Electricity/heat: \$1306 for 14,845 kWh in 2016 (Hydro Quebec)
Property tax/water: \$2934 for unlimited water and view of a fjord (Saguenay)
School tax: \$771 for 0 kids
Home insurance: \$635 (TD Meloche Monnex)
Car insurance/registration: \$1079 for turbocharged awd (TD Meloche Monnex)
Driver's Licence: \$228 (SAAQ)
Internet: \$719 for up to 300GB @ 30MBps fiber (Dery Telecom)
Phone: \$610 for 12GB/3 months and provincial talk (Public mobile)
TV: \$91 (Amazon Prime) + 2 day shipping
-------------------------------------
Total \$8373
