LIEN Annual Conference 2005 - Toronto

The Low Income Energy Network was pleased to host the Fighting Poverty and Pollution Conference in Toronto on April 7, 2005. This was a gathering for anti-poverty, affordable housing and environmental advocates in Ontario to share experiences and develop an action agenda on low-income energy issues such as:

  • Rising energy prices and housing affordability;
  • What the new electricity legislation means for the environment and affordability;
  • Reducing bills and pollution through energy conservation programs for low-income housing;
  • Smart meters, sub-metering, and how the new Tenant Protection Act deals with energy issues;
  • How to work with your local utility; and
  • Where should our energy come from in the future?; and
  • What should be the priorities for LIEN's activities in 2005 - 2006?

For background information and copies of presentations made at the conference, please refer to the documents posted below.
