November 1, 2019 – Ontario Electricity Rebate

Effective November 1, 2019 the Government of Ontario introduced a new electricity rebate called the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER). This rebate replaces the 8% Provincial Rebate and is intended to make electricity bills more transparent. The OER is a 31.8% on-bill rebate for households; small businesses; and qualifying multi-unit complexes, farms and long-term care homes.

Eligibility requirements for the OER
The eligibility requirements for the OER are different from the eligibility requirements for the former 8% Provincial Rebate. Even if you were previously eligible, you may be required to re-declare eligibility under the new rules by January 31, 2020 to continue receiving a rebate.
