Ontario Electricity Support Program

Ontario Electricity Support Program

The Ontario Energy Board offers a monthly credit to be applied to your Electricity Bill. The credit depends on two factors:

  • How many people live in your home
  • Combined household income

At East York Housing Help Centre, we can help you by filling out a manual income verification form with our OESP worker. You may also use our client self-help center to fill out the application online.
