January 18, 2022  By Government of Ontario

Businesses in Ontario who are required to close or reduce capacity due to COVID-19 public health measures can now  apply for the new Ontario Business Costs Rebate Program starting today.

Through the new program, Ontario will provide eligible businesses with a rebate payment of up to 100 per cent for property tax and energy costs they incur while subject to these restrictions.

Eligible businesses required to close for indoor activities, such as restaurants and gyms, will receive a rebate payment equivalent to 100 per cent of their costs. Anyone required to reduce capacity to 50 per cent, such as smaller retail stores, will receive a rebate payment equivalent to 50 per cent of their costs.


All eligible businesses must submit an application to be considered, including those that received previous COVID-19 support payments. To learn more, including to find a full list of eligible businesses, visit the online application portal here.
