- If the accommodation rent does not include these utilities or appliances, an allowance is provided.
- If the accommodation rent does include utilities, a charge is added to the rent.
- These allowances and/or charges are based on a utility scale prescribed by the Housing Services Act, 2011, Ontario Regulation 298/01, tables 6 through 10 inclusive, and may be subject to change periodically.
