Unaffordable energy bills mean people must decide between paying for utilities or groceries. These growing affordability concerns are leaving families and individuals with a series of impossible choices: energy bills, food for their families, housing costs, or transportation.
Energy efficiency upgrades are a proven way to lower energy bills. Energy efficiency creates good jobs, reduces energy waste, offers protection from cold and extreme weather events, and plays a critical role in achieving Canada’s climate goals.
Existing federal programs remove financial barriers for middle and upper-income Canadians looking to make their homes more energy efficient. But existing program gaps are leaving millions of low-income families behind because they require an upfront investment, and private market renters are still excluded.
The federal government could provide rapid relief to low-income Canadians struggling with home energy costs.
