Canada Greener Homes Grant

The Canada Greener Homes Grant provided incentives for home energy efficient retrofits to help improve your home’s energy efficiency, increase home comfort, reduce your environmental footprint, and save money.

Participants received up to $5,600 in total:

  • Up to $600 for two EnerGuide evaluations (one pre- and one post retrofit); and
  • Up to $5,000 for energy-efficient retrofits



The Canada Greener Homes Grant is no longer accepting new applicants. The Canada Greener Homes Loan is still accepting applications and you might be eligible for other rebates.

How to Apply for Canada Greener Homes Grant:

Step 1: Set up your Greener Homes profile
Step 2: Get a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation
Step 3: Complete at least one retrofit that is both eligible and recommended by an Energy Advisor
Step 4: Setup a post-retrofit audit to claim your rebate

A couple of reminders for homeowners:

  • Save copies of all program documentation until March 31, 2028
  • All products used must be purchased in Canada. Online purchases are only eligible if they are ordered from an online distributor located in Canada.

Note: In Ontario, the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program has replaced the Canada Greener Homes Grant. Contact us to start your application for HER+. Residents of Quebec and Nova Scotia should book your EnerGuide evaluation through your respective provincial programs.
