Once you have completed your retrofits, you are ready to book your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation and apply for the grant.

Only retrofit work done after December 1, 2020 that includes both the pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation can qualify for a grant. Evaluations completed prior to December 1st, 2020 are not eligible for a grant.

You will be required to undertake at least one retrofit that is both eligible and recommended by your energy advisor in their report to receive a grant.

Final steps to receive your grant

2

Book your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation

Sign in to the portal to request your post-retrofit evaluation.

Get ready for your evaluation:

3

Receive your post-retrofit evaluation

The post-retrofit evaluation shows how much energy has been saved, how much greenhouse gas emissions are reduced because of the retrofits, and how much your energy advisor recommends you receive for your grant.

Once completed, your evaluation will include:

  • your new EnerGuide rating and label
  • follow-up information indicating improvements to your home energy efficiency and your EnerGuide rating

Your energy advisor has up to 30 days after your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation to submit electronic and signed paper documents to Natural Resources Canada.

You will be able to login to access your reports. Once you have reviewed your evaluation, mark this step as completed in the portal to move forward.

Upload all documents online

To ensure that you properly receive the grant, you must provide all of the following documents so we can verify your eligible retrofits:

  • receipts for your pre-and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation
  • all receipts and invoices for products purchased and for installation costs
  • for grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems, a copy of the letter of approval or permission for inter-connection issued by the local electrical or building authority

It is highly recommended that you also have an attestation form(s) (if applicable for your retrofit) confirming that:

* Mechanical systems include: ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps, cold climate air source heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, furnaces (eligible for Northern and off-grid community residents only), and boilers (eligible for Northern and off-grid community residents only).

You will need to keep copies of your documents until March 31, 2028. The federal grants are not taxable and do not have to be declared as income.

Your energy advisor will upload your before and after photos.

Contact us if you need assistance with this step.

Zero tolerance environment for the Canada Greener Homes Grant Initiative

The Canada Greener Homes Grant Initiative operates an environment free from discrimination, harassment, hate and otherwise inappropriate conduct. Inappropriate language, images and other forms of communication or behaviour directed towards the program, its staff, third-party delivery partners or participants will not be tolerated and is grounds for dismissal of the application or the applicant from the program and its benefits.

For Quebec and Nova Scotia residents

If you completed at least one retrofit that was both recommended by your energy advisor under Rénoclimat or the Home Energy Assessment program and eligible under the Canada Greener Homes Grant, NRCan will contact you directly about any additional grants.

Costs of your home evaluations

The prices vary across Canada and are dependent on factors like the location and size of a home. The maximum total grant amount is $600 for the two evaluations. Homeowners will pay up-front for their EnerGuide evaluations.

In some cases, the maximum amount for the two evaluations may not cover the full cost of the evaluations. You will not receive the grant for the pre-retrofit evaluation unless you continue through the full Greener Homes Grant process.

Canada Greener Homes Initiative

  • Grants from $125 to $5,000 to get a part of your costs back for eligible home retrofits.
  • Up to $600 as a maximum contribution towards the total costs of your pre and post retrofit EnerGuide home evaluations.
  • Interest-free Loan: up to $40,000, with a repayment term of 10 years
