Canada Greener Homes Grant

On May 27, 2021, the federal government unveiled the details of the Canada Greener Homes Grant, providing financial assistance for homeowners who are renovating their homes to make them both more energy efficient and more comfortable.

In Québec, homeowners will have to register for the Rénoclimat program in order to benefit from this grant. The financial assistance provided by the Rénoclimat program will be adjusted for each participant based on the work done and the amount offered by the federal program. The two amounts of financial assistance are not cumulative for the same measure.

Participants in the Rénoclimat program who received an evaluation prior to the announcement may be eligible to apply for the federal grant for eligible work completed since December 1, 2020. Eligible participants will be contacted by Service Canada to receive instructions on how to get the grant.

What Greener Homes offers

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is open to owners of an eligible primary residence. The offered amount can be up to $5,000 and can be used, for example, for some heating and cooling system retrofits, envelope measures such as windows and insulation and some renewable energy measures.

For details about the federal program, please visit the Greener Homes website.

COVID-19 — Home visits

Energy evaluations conducted by Rénoclimat advisors during home visits are gradually resuming.

  • The authorized organization in your region will contact you to schedule a home visit.
  • Appointment applications received during the suspension period will be processed in order of receipt.
  • Appointment applications received from April 1 onwards will be processed after those already on hold.

In all cases, longer delays are to be expected before getting an appointment, as there is a high number of pending applications in all regions.

Health instructions for visits

It is essential to continue to follow the various health instructions to limit the risks associated with the spread of the virus.
