OEB visits Timmins to spark a conversation on energy matters

TORONTO, June 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Today, the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) announced its latest community-based information sessions to take place in Timmins. Today and Tuesday, the OEB will be in the city to raise consumer awareness about key energy matters.

Our representatives, Lilia Shillingford and Liam Lonergan, will speak about consumer rights and responsibilities and the rules energy companies must follow. The sessions will focus on the role of the OEB regarding setting energy rates and protecting consumers who may be considering signing a contract to buy their power from a private energy company. Attendees can also learn more about the Ontario Electricity Support Program and other low-income support programs.

On Monday, June 6, between 6 – 10 p.m., the OEB's Lilia Shillingford will address Council at Timmins' City Council Meeting, 220 Algonquin Blvd East.

On Tuesday, June 7, the OEB will host an Open House between 10 a.m.4 p.m. at the McIntyre Community Centre at 85 McIntyre Rd. That will be followed by a public presentation for consumers between 4 – 6 p.m.
