Your personal information is being collected for the purpose of administering CEAP, including but not limited to, determining your eligibility for CEAP.

The funding for CEAP is provided by the Government of Ontario. Given that, in order to verify and determine whether you were eligible for CEAP and/or to otherwise administer CEAP, it may be necessary for your utility to share your information with the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines. If the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines requests any of the personal information contained in this form in order to verify your eligibility for CEAP or for audit purposes related to the administration of CEAP, your utility will supply it to them. The Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines may contact you for further information as part of their audit. You are encouraged to retain any documentation that demonstrates you meet the eligibility for CEAP.
