Since February, the Ontario and Federal governments have announced over $800 million for greenhouse gas emission reductions and energy efficiency retrofits in Ontario’s existing social housing. This funding provides a major opportunity to improve your building’s efficiency and complete repairs:
|Program||Project Types||Funding for Ontario||Years|
|SHARP & SHEEP (Ontario)||
|Climate Change Action Plan (Ontario)||
||Up to $500 million||2017-2020|
|Social Housing Improvement Program (part of Ontario allocation of federal Social Infrastructure Fund)||
If you haven’t had funding confirmed under SHARP or SHEEP, there will still be an opportunity for funding through upcoming programs. It’s important to be prepared in advance of when program details are announced:
This spring, HSC engaged the sector for input on funding program design and delivery. This input will be shared with the Province as it develops the incoming programs.
HSC is providing support to Service Managers and housing providers to maximize project impacts.
Utilities are the single largest controllable operating cost for your building. The incoming funding can help you reduce your energy and water consumption, resulting in lower operating costs for your building. Taking steps now to decrease your operating costs will put you in a good position at your EOA date.
Additional funding has been committed under the Province’s Poverty Reduction Strategy, Long-term Affordable Housing Strategy, the 2016 Federal Budget, and Federal/Provincial Investment in Affordable Housing.

Whether you’re new to UMP or a long-time participant, it’s important to understand and engage your UMP report every quarter.
A quick way to understand how the UMP report works is to review our UMP Energy Dashboard video.
In addition to the Graphs and Tables tabs outlined in the video, there are now Water (W), Electricity (ELG, EHG), and Gas (GLG, GHG) benchmark tabs in your report. These tabs are more detailed versions of the Benchmark Gauges you see on the Graphs tab.
The Energy Conservation Suggestions tab provides useful articles, tips, and links to incentive programs. Each quarter, we add new articles and links to this tab to help you address your energy consumption.
It’s helpful to know some of the key terms used on your report:
|Benchmark:||A comparison of your building’s energy performance either to itself over time or to other similar buildings. UMP does both for you.|
|Actual:||Your actual energy consumption for a given period.|
|Baseline:||Your projected usage based on historical usage and adjusted for weather.
|Energy Use Intensity (EUI):||EUI is a useful way to compare a building’s consumption to that of many buildings of similar heating and building type. It is calculated by dividing your consumption for the past 12 months by your building’s gross floor area (in square metres). EUI is used as the unit of comparison for the Benchmark Gauges and on the Water, Electricity, and Gas tabs.|
When looking at your report, how do you know if your building’s is performing well? Here are a few quick tips:
While your building’s energy performance may be improving over time, it could also be using more energy than other buildings in the sector, or vice versa. For this reason, it’s important to look not just at usage over time but how your building is doing compared to other buildings. Getting a complete picture of your energy consumption – both quarter-to-quarter and relative to other buildings – will help you better address your building’s energy performance.
