Rebates for renovations

The Canada Greener Homes Grant incentive introduced by the federal government makes grants up to $5000 available for homeowners to help pay for the cost of energy efficient retrofits. Eligible rebates qualify for an additional $600 to help pay for the evaluation

Energy advisors play a key part in the delivery of this rebate. Booking an energy evaluation is a requirement to qualify for the rebate.

Qualifying upgrades for the rebate include windows, doors, attic insulation and heat pumps. See full list here

These grants are only available to homeowners who have had an energy assessment on their home before the renovation begins.

Don't miss out on thousands in rebates by starting work before you speak with an energy advisor. Let us guide you through the process to ensure you maximize the rebates available.

We will also contact you directly once your application appears in our waitlist.

Step 4: Pre-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation

 

You must complete a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation before beginning the retrofits to be eligible for the grant.

An energy advisor performs the pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation, which measures the energy efficiency of your home. The evaluation is conducted in person and takes 1-2 hours to complete. During this time your advisor can provide guidance on the energy upgrades you are considering.

Step 4B: (optional) Interest-free loan

For more information, see our Greener Homes Loan page.

Step 5: Retrofit your home

After the pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation is complete, you will be provided a thorough report of your existing home and our recommendations.

 

Once you review the recommendations you can decide which retrofits work best for your budget and renovation plans.

Step 6: Post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation

Book a post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation, and submit the required documents online or by mail. Once complete, your new EnerGuide label will show you how much more energy-efficient your home has become.

Step 7: Request and receive your grant

You will be asked to confirm your total grant amount, which will cover part of your retrofits cost. After you confirm, you will receive a cheque by mail within 30 business days.
