Free Dental Services for Low-Income Families

January 30, 2017:  More than 380 low-income families and individuals across a broad area of eastern Ontario, including the Quinte Region, will receive free dental care thanks to some one-time provincial funding.

Over the next few months, each of the five Community Health Centres across the area served by the Southeast Local Health Integrated Network will be able to provide 81 patients with dentures, and offer more than 300 clients greater access to specialized dental services.

There will be funding for the Belleville Quinte West CHC and Gateway in Tweed.  You do not need to be a member of a CHC in order to qualify, but do need to meet eligibility criteria set by the program.

See this Quinte News article for more details or contact your local Community Health Centre.

Sign up for the Ontario Energy Support Program Now to Reduce Your Electric Bill

Ontario Energy Support Program Ad

If you are a customer of an electric utility and in a lower income home, you may qualify for a reduction on your electricity bill through the Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP).  It is also available to customers of unit sub-meter providers and retail energy companies.  You must apply to the program to receive the reduction.

If your home is electrically heated, or you rely on medical devices requiring a lot of power, OESP offers a higher level of assistance.  It takes 6-8 weeks to process an application, so you should apply ASAP.

Visit https://ontarioelectricitysupport.ca/ to complete an application or visit the OEB website (or call them, Toll Free, 1-855-831-8151) for more information. You can apply online or through an intake agency.
