Financial Assistance

There’s Help for Low-Income Households.

If you are having difficulties paying your electricity bill, there are local and provincial assistance programs which you may be eligible for.

Ontario Electricity
Support Program

If you are a customer of Lakeland Power and in a lower-income home, you may qualify for a reduction on your electricity bill. The OESP will reduce the cost of your household electricity by applying a monthly credit directly to your bill. The credit amount will depend on how many people live in your home and your combined household income.

Low Income Energy
Assistance Program

If you are eligible, you can get emergency financial help through the Ontario Energy Board’s LEAP. To apply and find out if you qualify, you must go through the District Municipality of Muskoka (705-645-2412).
