Amendments to O. Reg. 222/07: Environmental Penalties
We have made amendments to Ontario Regulation 222/07 under the Environmental Protection Act. As discussed in the update to our proposal notice, posted under ERO 019-4108, amendments to this regulation include the ability to issue environmental penalties at specific landfilling sites (e.g., with an approved capacity of 40,000 cubic metres or more).
Updating the Income Eligibility Thresholds for the Ontario Electricity Support Program
The Ministry of Energy amended Schedule 1 of O. Reg. 14/18 (Ontario Electricity Support Program) under the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998 to update the income eligibility thresholds for the Ontario Electricity Support Program from the 2010 Low Income Measures to the 2020 Low Income Measures.
The amendment aligns program income requirements with current Statistics Canada data and better reflects recent economic conditions.
The Ministry of Energy was exempted from posting to the Regulatory Registry.
