AMPs in Ontario

Under the Payday Loans Act, the Ministry can issue an AMP to licensees in a variety of non-compliance situations, such as failing to provide required dates on a loan agreement, with AMP amounts varying from $100 to $3,000.

The Ontario Energy Board can apply AMPs of between $5,000 and $20,000 per day against energy marketers and retailers who violate licence conditions, rules of conduct and orders.

Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment can issue penalties of up to $100,000 a day for the most serious violations and $1,000 per day for less serious violations, with the exact amount determined by a formula, for harmful spills from facilities operated by a range of sectors that it regulates
