    Canada Greener          Home Grants
    (I
nsulation Rebates )

Homeowners are eligible for up to $5,000 insulation rebate for eligible retrofits plus $600 for the cost of pre- and post-retrofit Energy Audit, total of $5,600.

To help homeowners make energy efficiency retrofits to their homes, the initiative will provide up to 700,000 grants worth up to $5000.

During the process, you will need to complete two EnerGuide evaluations; a pre and post-retrofit evaluation. These evaluations are completed by NRCan registered energy advisors.

The pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation provides you expert advice on what retrofits make the most sense for your home. It will help you understand how to improve the energy performance of your home.

When the pre-retrofit evaluation is complete, the energy advisor will provide you with:

  • an EnerGuide home rating and a label

  • a Renovation Upgrade Report and Homeowner Information Sheet with recommendations for improving your home’s energy performance

The post-retrofit evaluation, which you will receive after the work is complete, provides a measure of energy saved and greenhouse gas emissions reduced as a result of the retrofits.

Grant Amounts

  • Grant amounts vary based on building type and upgrade completed.  For complete grant eligibility, see the Canada Greener Homes Grant website.

  • If you are eligible, you could be reimbursed for:

    • Up to $5,000 total for insulation rebates across all upgrade categories. Only homeowners who conduct at least one retrofit that is both recommended by an energy advisor and eligible will be reimbursed.

    • Up to $600 for the cost of your pre-and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation.
