Introducing the COVID-19 Relief Fund for small businesses

A message from Chris O’Riley, President & CEO of BC Hydro

The last month has been challenging. COVID-19 has meant many changes for us as individuals, and for our communities.

At BC Hydro, we recognize many of our small business customers are struggling, with some forced to close. We want to help.

This week, we introduced a COVID-19 Relief Fund to help our customers who have had to close their small business as a result of COVID-19.

The Relief Fund delivers support to you now, when you need it most

If your small business needed to close, the Relief Fund waives your electricity use charges.

  • Charges will be waived for up to three months.
  • You will not have to pay this back.
  • The application window opens soon, and you can apply until June 30, 2020.

All businesses are also eligible to defer payments or arrange a flexible payment plan to help pay their BC Hydro bills.

Visit our website for more information on how we can help you.

We’re here for you

We’re committed to helping our customers during this challenging time. As an essential service in this province, we’ve adapted our business and we will continue to adapt so that we can uphold our commitment to safely provide you with electricity.

You’ve stood by us through our worst storms; this is us standing by you.
