Working to address the energy needs of Ontario’s low-income households

The Low-Income Energy Network aims to ensure universal access to adequate, affordable energy as a basic necessity, while minimizing the impacts on health and on the local and global environment of meeting the essential energy and conservation needs of all Ontarians. We promote programs and policies which tackle the problems of energy poverty and homelessness, reduce Ontario’s contribution to smog and climate change, and promote a healthy economy through the more efficient use of energy, a transition to renewable sources of energy, education, and consumer protection.

This site is designed primarily to share information with the Network about LIEN’s activities, and activities of its members on issues related to addressing the energy needs of Ontario’s low-income households and energy issues. We welcome your feedback and, if you’re not a member, we invite you to join the network.
