Canada Greener Homes Grant Program
The Canada Greener Homes Grant Program offers up to $5,000 in grants for energy-saving upgrades for homeowners and a subsidized EnerGuide Evaluation.
This evaluation allows our Energy Advisors to provide a customized plan for energy efficiency improvements, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and save on energy bills. An EnerGuide home energy evaluation is required before upgrades are started.
Please note that there is a surge in demand for evaluations and NRCan is just releasing details of the program at the time of launch. In order to participate, homeowners must register in the program in order to confirm eligibility. See below for the steps required in order to participate in the program.

Why Get an EnerGuide Evaluation?
The Energuide Evaluation is required to participate in the grant program and helps you better understand unusually high energy use in your home and the best efficiency upgrade path so that you can move towards a net-zero building. This evaluation takes approximately 2.5 hours and is subsidized by Natural Resources Canada.
Who is Eligible?
Grants are available for primary residences for homeowners across Canada. A list of eligible upgrades and other program details can be found on the program website.
Cost of the Evaluations?
The cost of the evaluation depends on where the house is located. The cost of the pre-upgrade EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation for the average house in some municipalities and provinces is fully subsidized. The cost of the post-upgrade evaluation also varies by province or municipality. For larger, more complex (3,000 sq. ft. and over), or remote homes an additional charge may apply. We are happy to provide a quote specific to your location and home size.
