Local Improvement Charges Information Session

Interested in energy conservation? Want to help make our city more energy efficient?   The residential sector is responsible for 30% of our energy use! Imagine the energy—and money—that could be saved if home energy upgrades were more accessible!

EH and Hamilton Association for Renewable Energy (HARE) are trying to bring an exciting new program called local improvement charges (LICs) to Hamilton.

LICs are long-term, low interest rate loans provided by the municipality and placed on your property tax bill.  A homeowner can make their home more energy efficient with no payment upfront!

We need public support to encourage the City to implement this program!  Have questions?  Want to learn more?  Come to our information session:

Wednesday July 16th, 7 pm

Laidlaw Memorial United Church, 155 Ottawa St. North

All are welcome!

You can also visit for more information about LICs and how they work,

We are also looking for volunteers to help with this initiative!

Volunteers will be going door-to-door with EH staff and talking to residents about how local improvement projects can benefit us.

Are you interested in Volunteering?  Please contact Joy at or at (905) 549-0900.
