The Canada Greener Homes Grant has been helping Canadian homeowners pay for energy efficiency upgrades since its introduction in 2021. As noted in our Retrofitting Canada’s Homes: Progress Report #1, the incentive program has been highly successful in stimulating retrofits. 

As a result, NRCan is already running out of money to keep the program going. This would mean the program — originally announced for seven years — would now come to an end only after two-and-a-half years. 

This will significantly reduce the capacity of Canadian homeowners to retrofit their homes. This announcement is also a step back from Canada’s commitment towards achieving its GHG emission reduction goals. 

Green Communities Canada has urged the federal government to reconsider this decision. We are working with other EnerGuide Service Organizations across the country to petition Minister of Natural Resources Canada Jonathan Wilkinson, Environment and Climate Change Minister Steven Guilbeault, and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland to extend the Canada Greener Homes Grant. 

Now, we request all Canadians to participate in our letter writing campaign to ask the federal government to continue rebates for energy efficiency home upgrades.
