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.

For homeowners residing in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island, please visit your provincial programs for more information as details vary.

Journey to access your Canada Greener Homes Grant

When your grant journey with Rénoclimat is completed, you will receive an email from NRCan informing you that your application was submitted for consideration under the Canada Greener Homes Grant federal program. Due to privacy and protection of personal information laws, NRCan will need to seek your consent to review your retrofit documentation and will need to collect your retrofit invoices.

Please respond to the NRCan email as soon as possible with the following information:

  • your completed and signed Consent and Declaration Form
  • all invoices for your retrofits

In case NRCan requires additional information to complete the review of your grant application, you are asked to keep and make available the following documentation:

  • your Renovations Upgrade Report (RUR)
  • your pre- and post-retrofit evaluation EnerGuide labels

The grant review will only start once all required documents are received by NRCan.

When the grant review is completed, you will receive an email from NRCan confirming the final Canada Greener Homes Grant amount decision. Eligible recipients will receive a cheque by mail through Canada Post.

3 tips to help you when submitting documents to NRCan by email

  • Tip 1 – Clearly indicate your name and application number in the email subject line. When submitting your documentation, indicate your name and your application number in your email’s subject line. Doing so expedites the triage and processing of emails.
  • Tip 2 – Limit the size of your file attachment(s). If you are submitting multiple or large attachments (over 5 MB), we strongly recommended that you zip your documents into a single folder or submit the documents in a series of emails to avoid processing issues. If sending a series, add how many emails you are sending in the subject line of the email for ease in the triage, for example, “Email 1 of 4, Email 2 of 4,” etc.
  • Tip 3 – Check your spam folder! If you have not received an email from NRCan during your journey with the Canada Greener Homes Initiative, please check your spam or junk folder. If the email ended up in one of these folders, add the email to your trusted senders folder or mark the email as “not junk.” This way, our future emails will go directly to your inbox.

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.
