Low to median income homeowners who were heating their homes with oil and have already installed a heat pump as part of the Canada Greener Homes Grant on or after January 1st, 2023, may be eligible for up to $5,000 in additional grant funding under the Oil to Heat Pump Affordability (OHPA) program. These homeowners will receive an email from the Canada Greener Homes Initiative with information on how to apply.

If your household income meets the OHPA eligibility threshold and you purchased at least 500 litres of heating oil in the 12 months prior to installing your new heat pump, you could be eligible to receive this additional funding.

Unsolicited phone calls or door-to-door visits—Remain vigilant!

NRCan has not approved any third parties to make unsolicited contact with homeowners to register for or participate in the Canada Greener Homes Grant. The Government of Canada, NRCan and its family of brands (ENERGY STAR®, EnerGuide) never solicit over the telephone, or by email or go door-to-door asking to enter Canadians’ homes to inspect, sell, or rent heating and cooling products. EnerGuide home energy evaluations are performed by licensed service organizations only at the request of homeowners. Learn how to recognize energy scams.

Need a loan for your retrofit?

The Canada Greener Homes Loan offers interest-free loans of up to $40,000 to help Canadians make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable. Homeowners are required to complete a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation to participate in the program. Only retrofits that are recommended by an energy advisor and that have not yet been started are eligible.
