Putting More Money Into People’s Pockets and Providing Access to Affordable Energy

The PC government is delivering on its promise to provide access to affordable energy for 43 additional communities with over $234 million in funding for Phase 2 of the government’s Natural Gas Expansion Program.

Natural gas is the most common heating source in Ontario, and yet thousands of people in Ontario don’t have access to affordable heating.

Ontarians, especially those living in rural, Northern and Indigenous communities expect and deserve reliable and affordable heating.

That’s why, the PC government announced $234 million in funding for 43 rural, northern and Indigenous communities through the government’s Natural Gas Expansion Program.

The average household could save between $250 to $1,500 per year in energy costs.

Businesses are expected to save up to 30 per cent on energy costs per year.

Expanding natural gas access will not only deliver more affordable energy but will also kick start economic development and support Ontario’s post-COVID economic recovery by creating roughly 5,000 well-paying jobs and $1.5 billion in local investments.

This government is putting people first and keeping more money in Ontarians’ pockets with more affordable energy costs.

“We’re sending a clear message that Ontario is open for business,” said Bill Walker, MPP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound and Associate Minister of Energy. “As part of our government’s plan to make life more affordable, we prioritized broad distribution across Ontario to help as many homes and businesses keep the cost of energy low, support jobs and attract new investment. This will be a game-changer for these 43 communities.”
