Canada’s Green Home Grants: Your Path to Affordable Upgrades

Are you an Ontario resident looking to upgrade your home and make it more energy-efficient? If so, you’re in luck! There are several grants and loans available to help you fund these improvements and create a greener, more comfortable living space. In this guide, we’ll outline the various opportunities that Ontario residents can tap into for financial assistance in their home renovation journey.

1. Canada Greener Homes Grant

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is a fantastic initiative co-delivered by Natural Resources Canada and Enbridge Gas in Ontario through the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program. This grant is designed for homeowners who want to undertake recommended and eligible retrofits to enhance their home’s energy efficiency. These retrofits include improvements like home insulation, upgrading windows and doors, adopting heat pumps, and integrating renewable energy systems.

The grant offers a wide range of financial support, ranging from $125 to $5,000. This means you can recoup a substantial portion of the costs associated with your eligible home retrofits.

To be eligible for this grant, all you need to do is provide proof of ownership and establish that your home is your primary residence. It’s that simple! However, before you start any renovation work, it’s important to complete a home energy assessment with a registered Energy Advisor.You can start this process by clicking on the link below and following the application steps and follow the prompts to get you assigned energy advisor. This assessment ensures that you’re making informed decisions about the retrofits your home truly needs.

Similar to the Canada Greener Homes Grant, this program brings rebates to Ontarians seeking to make eligible retrofits like home insulation, window and door upgrades, heat pumps, and renewable energy system installations.

Remember, before embarking on any renovation work, you’ll need to conduct a home energy assessment with a Registered Energy Advisor. This step ensures that you’re making informed decisions tailored to your home’s unique needs.

3. Canada Greener Home Loan

Sometimes, the upgrades your home needs are more extensive, and that’s where the Canada Greener Home Loan comes into play. This loan is designed to complement the Canada Greener Homes Grant, providing interest-free financing to support major retrofits recommended by your energy advisor.

With loan amounts ranging from $5,000 to $40,000 and a generous 10-year, interest-free repayment term, the Canada Greener Home Loan empowers you to undertake significant energy-efficient upgrades without the burden of high-interest rates.
