Greener Homes Grant
With the release of the Canada Greener Homes Grant from the federal government will help homeowners make their homes more energy-efficient, create new jobs across Canada for energy advisors, grow our domestic green supply chains and fight climate change.
What’s available through the initiative? (a basic overview)
Up to 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 to help homeowners make energy efficient retrofits to their homes, such as better insulation
EnerGuide evaluations (worth up to $600) and expert advice to homeowners so they can begin to plan their retrofits
Requirements for the Initiative:Homeowners must:
- complete a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation (residents of Quebec and Nova Scotia need to apply directly through their provincial programs to book their EnerGuide evaluation);

- Up to $5,000 total for the implementation of eligible retrofits done after December 1, 2020.
- Up to an additional $600 for the cost of their pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluations. They will not be reimbursed for the pre-retrofit evaluation unless they continue through the full Greener Homes Grant process.
