Canada Greener Homes Grant


6/10/2021 9:03:46 AM

Buildings, including our homes, account for 18% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. One of the ways we as Canadians can contribute to lowering this statistic is through more energy-efficient homes. 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 initiative is offering up to 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 to help homeowners make energy efficient improvements to their homes, such as better insulation. In addition to these home improvements, the grant is also offering EnerGuide evaluations (worth up to $600) and expert advice to homeowners so they can begin to plan their retrofits. The EnerGuide evaluation is carried out by an energy advisor who is registered with Natural Resources Canada. Participants are eligible for up to a total of $5,600 under the initiative and updates will be provided over the life of the initiative to keep homeowners informed.

The following organizations are licensed by Natural Resources Canada to deliver the EnerGuide home evaluation for existing homes within Oxford County:
