“Don’t be Afraid to Say No” – Energy Scam Awareness Campaign

Apr 11, 2022

“Don’t be Afraid to Say No” – Energy Scam Awareness Campaign

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) and the Ontario Ministry of Energy are working together to protect consumers against scams.

Frauds are being committed through phone calls, texts, emails, social media ads and unexpected home visits.  Operators are using aggressive tactics and targeting vulnerable populations, often convincing them to sign contracts.  They often claim to be connected with the OEB or other government programs.

Some companies falsely include the OEB’s name and logo in their messaging.

Be careful when responding to unsolicited emails, texts, calls and in-person visits about your energy services.

Ottawa River Power, the Ministry of Energy and the Ontario Energy Board do not make unsolicited phone calls.  If you are concerned about a suspicious call, please contact:

  • Ottawa River Power – 613-732-3687
  • Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre – 1-888-495-8501 (toll-free)
  • Ontario Energy Board – 1-877-632-2727

ORPC Conditions of Service Updated

Mar 17, 2022

The Distribution System Code requires that every distributor produce its own “Conditions of Service” document.  The purpose of this document is to provide a means of communicating the types and level of service available to the customers within the distributor’s service territory.

The previous version of the Conditions of Service was published in 2019.  Since then, various changes to regulations and codes that govern Distributor activities have come into effect, which in turn require updates to the original document.

ORPC’s Conditions of Service has been updated and accepted by the OEB as of February 4th 2022. You can find more information and the latest copy of the ORPC Conditions of Service using the following link:
