Residential customers who have had wages cut, due to the pandemic, will receive a three-month bill credit worth triple their average monthly bills. Customers will not have to pay this back.

Small businesses can expect a three-month “holiday” from their payments. They can apply for this starting April 14th and have until April 30th to apply.

BC Hydro will also give large businesses the option of a three-month deferment.

The B.C. government is offering other relief aids to help Canadians during the pandemic.
