Changes to the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program are underway. Details will be posted as soon as possible.


The Government of Ontario is providing support for residential and small business customers struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of COVID-19. The COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is delivered directly by electricity utilities, including Burlington Hydro, further to rules laid out by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). CEAP funding is limited. Burlington Hydro will process applications in the order in which they are received. Submitting an application for CEAP to Burlington Hydro does not guarantee funding.
