Saving energy saves you money
Approximately 18% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions comes from buildings, including our homes. The government of Canada wants to help Canadians make their homes more energy-efficient. As a result, homes will be more comfortable and more affordable to live in, while also helping to support our environmental goals.
The Canada Greener Homes Grant helps homeowners make their homes more efficient, creates jobs across Canada, helps grow our domestic green industries and helps fight climate change.
What’s available through the initiative?
- Up to 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 to help homeowners make energy efficient retrofits to their homes
- EnerGuide evaluations (worth up to $600) and expert advice so homeowners can plan their retrofits
