Low-Income Energy Assistance Program

The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is a year-round, province-wide emergency financial assistance developed by the Ontario Energy Board for low-income electricity customers who are experiencing difficulty paying their energy bills.

This program provides emergency relief in order to help customers manage their energy costs and avoid having their service disconnected. It is not intended to provide regular or ongoing bill payment assistance, but rather to ensure that in a crisis, low-income families stay warm and stay connected. Eligible consumers can receive a one-time payment of up to $500 per household, per calendar year, which is credited directly to their electricity bill. Eligibility includes a pre-tax income at or below Statistics Canada’s Low-Income Cut-off (LICO) plus 15%.

In North Bay, LEAP is administered by L.I.P.I. (Low Income People Involvement of Nipissing).
