Payment will be able to apply for the Greener Homes Loan for any remaining qualified retrofits that have not yet begun. A part of the money might be provided to you ahead of time to begin work on your property. For these sorts of renovations, contractors frequently request a down payment.

The Greener Homes Grant

The Greener Homes Grant is intended to pay up to $5000 in energy-efficient retrofits such as windows and doors, home insulation, heating equipment, and renewable energy. Other improvements, such as resilience measures, air sealing, and programmable thermostats, will be reimbursed to a lesser extent.

The funding is conditioned on undertaking EnerGuide energy audits and includes an additional $600 for this evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the energy audit included in the $5,000 grant amount?
No. An additional $600 can be covered through the Greener Homes Grant for the energy evaluation alone. That additional $600 doesn’t count towards your $5,000 grant.
How much can a homeowner get for retrofits?
Up to $5,000 is available as grant money for all retrofits.
How much money can you get back in grants for changing windows and doors?
  • $250 per rough opening for each ENERGY STAR 2021 Most Efficient rated windows
  • $125 per rough opening for ENERGY STAR High Efficiency rated windows
  • $125 for ENERGY STAR rated doors (including hinged and sliding doors, with transoms and sidelights)
  • For a total of up to $5,000
How do I break down the grant amount I can expect to receive?
Windows and door grants are calculated on a rough opening basis. A rough opening serves the purpose of installing one or more windows or doors. That means that multi-panel/composite windows, or doors with sidelites and transoms, are treated as a single unit per rough opening. For example, your bay window may consist of three or more separate frames, but it is still counted as filling a single rough opening.
How do I know which products are covered under the grant?

All products must be purchased and made in Canada. Our products are 100% locally manufactured.

All eligible manufacturers and their products must be registered on the NRCan database and ENERGY STAR rated.

All Energy Star labels must be kept on the windows and doors until after the final energy audit. Should any labels be misplaced after installation, please contact us for new labels.
