Interest-free loans of up to $40,000 are available from the Government of Canada to help homeowners pay for the cost of renovations.

 

The Canada Greener Homes Loan works alongside the existing provincial rebate programs.

With a 10 year, interest-free repayment term, homeowners may opt in to the loan when pursuing retrofits like insulation, heat pumps, solar panels, and more.

Energy advisors play a key part in the delivery of the loan.

Booking an energy evaluation is a requirement to qualify for the loan.
