Tackling energy poverty: How accessible, efficient, and cost-effective are programs designed to help lower income consumers pay their energy bills?

The Consumers' Association of Canada (Manitoba) Inc. will review existing and planned practices geared to assist low-income, Canadian consumers experiencing energy poverty. Their project will evaluate the cost-effectiveness and probable rate impact on consumers of both standing and proposed remedies. They will then make recommendations to governments, energy providers and regulatory tribunals to best help vulnerable energy consumers in Canada.
