The steps to follow for returning participants have been simplified.

You don’t need to have a new pre-retrofit energy evaluation: the most recent energy evaluation of your home will be used to check whether your renovations helped improve the EnerGuide rating of your home. If so, you might be eligible for a grant for new retrofits. The same procedure will apply for all subsequent participations in the Rénoclimat program.

Do you need a loan to finance your project?

If you need a loan to finance your project, you need to contact the service organization authorized in your region to request a new file. It will be necessary in order to apply for the Canada Greener Homes Loan.

For more information, please visit the program’s website or fill out the online application.

This registration must be made before starting your renovations.

Step 1:

Pick up where you left off

Find your Rénoclimat file number.


It can be found on your most recent Homeowner Information Sheet or EnerGuide label that your Rénoclimat advisor sent you after the latest home assessment.

Step 2:

Retrofit your home

Carry out new renovations. Use the recommendations listed in the renovation upgrade report to guide you throughout your project.

Step 3:

Schedule an appointment for a subsequent energy evaluation

Call us at 1-866-266-0008 to receive a subsequent energy evaluation. You can also register by filling out the web application form. (Please note that the form is only available in French).


When you schedule your appointment, don’t forget to mention that you have already participated in the Rénoclimat program. 


You should get an appointment within  three weeks of your request.  

Step 4:

Subsequent energy evaluation


An energy advisor will visit your home to conduct a subsequent energy evaluation. The advisor will note the retrofits that have been completed since the previous assessment and perform a new blower door test. These measurements will allow them to calculate the impact of the retrofits on your home's energy consumption. A new EnerGuide rating will then be determined.
Subsequent energy evaluations are currently free, but at some point during the current year 2024, homeowners will have to pay a fee of $150, plus applicable taxes, to the energy advisor during the home assessment. The effective date of the service fees will be communicated later.

Step 5:

Improvement assessment

You will receive an update to your homeowner information sheet and your EnerGuide label within 2 weeks following the subsequent energy evaluation.


The homeowner information sheet you will receive contains details of your home's energy consumption following the retrofits. The EnerGuide rating listed on the homeowner information sheet must have improved for the retrofits to be eligible for financial assistance from Rénoclimat.

Step 6:

File analysis

The measurements taken by the energy advisor during the subsequent evaluation must be transmitted to the Rénoclimat team to confirm that your file meets the program's eligibility conditions. If so, the grant you are entitled to will be calculated. You will receive updates on the progress of your file. Remember to provide the Social Insurance Number (SIN) of the main homeowner so that the grant can be paid to them.


The analysis process of your file should be completed between 8 to 10 weeks after the date of your subsequent energy evaluation.

Step 7:

Receive your Rénoclimat grant

If your file meets the eligibility conditions of the program, your Rénoclimat grant check will be sent to you by mail. Allow 2 weeks of processing time by Canada Post.
