Step 5. Request and receive your grant

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is no longer accepting new applicants. Homeowners who are already participating are encouraged to proceed in a timely manner with their retrofits and will continue to be eligible for funding and support through the Canada Greener Homes portal.

If you are an Ontario, Quebec or Nova Scotia homeowner participating in the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus, the Rénoclimat or the Home Energy Assessment program, please contact your provincial program for more information.

The Canada Greener Homes Loan and the Oil to Heat Pump Affordability program remain open. Thank you for your interest.

1. Review the results of your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation and confirm the grant amount

The post-retrofit evaluation will include:

  • an EnerGuide home rating and a label
  • an updated Homeowner Information Sheet that lists improvements to your home’s energy efficiency and its EnerGuide rating

Your energy advisor will confirm which retrofits were undertaken and provide an estimate of the grant amount you may be eligible for. The energy advisor is also required to provide you with these reports by mail or email. It can take at least 14 business days for them to reach you.

Your service organization is also required to submit your reports to the Canada Greener Homes portal. You can access your reports by logging in to the portal.

It can take a minimum of 30 days after your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation for the service organization to submit this information to the portal.

2. Upload your receipts and documents

You will be notified when the service organization has submitted all the necessary information into the Canada Greener Homes portal so you can review your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation documents.

At this point, you will need to upload the following documents so we can verify your eligible retrofits.

Mandatory documents

  • receipts for your pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluations
  • all receipts and invoices, marked paid in full, for products purchased and for installation costs

You can log into the portal and submit receipts at any time.

Other recommended documents

You may upload these documents if you have them and if applicable for your retrofits:

Note: Mechanical systems include ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps, cold climate air source heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, furnaces (eligible for northern and off-grid community residents only), and boilers (eligible for northern and off-grid community residents only).

You will need to keep copies of your documents until March 31, 2028. The federal grants are not taxable and do not have to be declared as income.

3. Request your grant

After you submit all your receipts and documents, you can request your grant through the online Canada Greener Homes portal.

Our program officers will then review your file and documents to confirm the total amount of the grant eligible for the retrofits you have completed. If there are any outstanding documents or questions, they will contact you directly.

The review can take up to 40 business days.

The amount of your grant will depend on which retrofits were completed and the total of your qualifying expenses. In no case will the grant exceed your qualifying costs.
