Waterloo Region Energy Assistance Program

We work with other utility partners throughout the Region of Waterloo to provide emergency funds for the Waterloo Region Energy Assistance Program (WREAP).

WREAP provides relief to families and individuals in our community who need financial assistance to pay their gas and electricity bills. If you are in arrears, or in danger of having your utilities disconnected for non-payment, WREAP may be able to help. 

You will need the following information to access WREAP funding:

  • Your Social Insurance number
  • Health Card number
  • Banking information, including your account number
  • Information on assets
  • Rent or mortgage amount

If you receive Ontario Works, you should speak directly with your case worker about accessing the fund. If you do not receive Ontario Works, you can call the WREAP Application Line at 519-883-2100 and speak with an Intake Coordinator.
