Ontario Electricity Support Program

About 500,000 homes qualify for the incoming Ontario Electricity Support Program, all of which could see a monthly credit of between $30 and $75 depending on the size of the family and the household income, Homes that rely on electric heat or where someone uses power for a medical device would also see a larger rebate. Families of seven, for example, making between $48,000 to $52,000 a year could qualify for a $540 annual credit if they use electric heat. A family in the same situation making less than $28,000, would get back $900 under the program.
