Buildings, including our homes, account for 18% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. The Canada Greener Homes Grant will help homeowners make their homes more energy-efficient, create new jobs across Canada for energy advisors, grow our domestic green supply chains, and fight climate change. This means homes will be more comfortable and more affordable to maintain while also supporting our environmental objectives.
What is available through this initiative?
- 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 available to Canadian homeowners.
- Expert advice from a Registered Energy Advisor before planning renovations to your home.
- An EnerGuide evaluation of your home (worth up to $600).
Steps to get started
- Book Your Pre-Retrofit EnerGuide Energy Evaluation with Greensaver
The pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation provides you expert advice on what retrofits make the most sense for your home (ie. insulation, draft proofing). Greensaver will provide you with an EnerGuide home rating label, Upgrade report that will help you understand how to improve the energy performance of your home.
- Register for the grant by visiting the Government of Canada Greener Homes portal
> Select ‘Greensaver’ as your licensed service provider
> Note: You will be required to provide ‘proof of ownership’ with your property tax bill number (this number can be found on your municipal property tax documents); either a driver’s license or government-issued ID (with address).
- Plan, document and complete your home retrofits
After you’ve received your reports from Greensaver, it is time to decide what retrofits (like insulation) you’ll complete. Note: If you decide to proceed with Insulation upgrades, Greensaver can schedule a free quote with our Insulation Retrofit Services team.
- Book your post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation with Greensaver
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.
