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.

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.
