As mentioned, effective November 1, 2021, are changes to the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER), which is a pre-tax credit that appears at the bottom of customers’ electricity bills. The update to the OER includes a decrease in the pre-tax credit from 18.9% to 17%. This change will be done in accordance with O. Reg. 363/16 (General) made under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016, which is available on Ministry of Energy’s website at: https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/160363
