- Consult the list of approved organizations and contact them with your questions about improving your home’s energy efficiency, the Rénoclimat program, making an energy evaluation appointment or your file after you have registered.
Since May 2021, the federal government also provides financial assistance to homeowners who are making renovations to make their homes both more energy efficient and more comfortable. Learn more about:
In Québec, you must first participate in the Rénoclimat program to receive these grants.
Once your participation in the Rénoclimat program is complete and financial assistance has been granted, your file is automatically transferred to the Canada Greener Homes Grant team.
In order to validate your eligibility for the Canada Greener Homes Grant, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) will then contact you by email to request that you forward certain documents without delay. Be sure to check your inbox and spam emails regularly to avoid delays in processing your file.
Check NRCan’s website for information on the Canada Greener Homes Grant (documents required, how to finalize the application, etc.).
The Rénoclimat program attracts a large number of participants. In some regions, the number of energy efficiency advisors available is insufficient to respond to requests for evaluation in the usual timeframe.
The shortage of certified advisors to carry out energy evaluations is particularly acute in the Outaouais and Chaudière-Appalaches regions.
Instructions for participants in these regions
All submitted energy evaluation applications are processed in the order in which they are received. Please feel free to submit your appointment request, even if our response times are abnormally long.
- For participants waiting for a pre-work evaluation : In order to benefit from the Rénoclimat program or the Canada Greener House Grant, you must not begin your renovation projects before the energy evaluation of your home. Please be assured that we will be prioritizing these types of appointments in the coming weeks.
- For participants who have completed their work : Unusual wait times are expected before your advisor contacts you to arrange an appointment. Keep all evidence of your work (invoices, photos, etc.) for presentation to the advisor during his or her visit.
Rest assured that we are putting everything in place to restore normal wait times.
More than 350 energy efficiency advisors work for the government’s Rénoclimat, Novoclimat and Éconologis programs across the province. This employment sector is growing rapidly, and there are labour needs in several regions of Québec.
