COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP)

Published on July 17, 2020

The government continues to provide support for residential, farm and small business electricity consumers during the COVID-19 outbreak.

For those experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the government is providing an additional $9 million through the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program. This program will provide struggling families with a one-time payment to help clear overdue electricity bill debt incurred over the COVID-19 outbreak period. 

The government will continue to support Ontario’s electricity consumers, as we respond to COVID-19, by providing stability and predictability to the millions of Ontarians who are working and learning from home. 

Applications for the CEAP program for residential consumers opened Monday, July 13, 2020.
