A water/wastewater financial assistance support program that was approved by City Council in May 2021.
This program provides financial assistance to low-income households in Barrie, to help offset water/wastewater bill costs. Successful applicants will be credited a portion of their water/wastewater bill back to them.
The credit provided will not exceed 40% of the total water/wastewater bill to a maximum of $60 per billing cycle.
The following criteria must be met:
Applicants must re-apply each year. Once approved, the applicant will receive the credit for a full year from the date of approval.
Applicants will receive an email or a letter that confirms approval, or reasoning why the application was denied. If approved, the credit will be applied to the next water/wastewater bill.
You may still qualify. If you apply before the April 30 income tax deadline, you can provide the
Canada Revenue Agency's NOA/NOR from two years prior. You will then need to provide the previous year's NOA/NOR by June 1 to continue to receive the credit.
No. If you have already been approved, the program is transferable to any address within Barrie for the time remaining (one year from date of approval).
There are currently other programs available to financially support individuals on home dialysis. The
Ontario Renal Network offers a grant to help offset the added electricity and water costs.
Yes, applicants can be in arrears, but the rebate is not retroactive. A credit in the current year will be applied to the arrears balance owing.
No. The tenant must apply, and the water/wastewater account must be in their name.
