Indigenous Peoples may be eligible to register multiple homes if they own the home or have a formal partnership to represent the owners if the homes are occupied by an Indigenous household.

Please Note: Homeowners who are renting out their property or who have not yet moved into their home, and renters are not eligible for the grant.

* MURBs over three storeys or with a footprint of over 600 m2 or containing over 100 units are not eligible homes under the initiative. For the Canada Greener Homes Grant initiative, a low-rise MURB is defined based on Part 9 of the National Building Code of Canada.

Canada Greener Homes Loan (up to $40,000)

How The Grant Process Works in Quebec

All retrofits must be completed following an EnerGuide home evaluation.

  1. Apply online through Natural Resources Canada.
  2. Book your pre-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation with an advisor registered with Natural Resources Canada. A list of approved energy advisors is available when you register for the program. Work cannot start until the evaluation is completed.
  3. Apply for an optional, interest-free loan. You can apply for the Canada Greener Homes Loan through NRCan after you have received your EnerGuide evaluation. To be eligible for the loan, you must not have started or completed your retrofits.
  4. Review the EnerGuide evaluation. This evaluation will identify eligible energy efficient upgrades for your home.
  5. Retrofit your home based on the EnerGuide evaluation. Explore homedepot.ca to find products to support your retrofit. Our Home Services team can help with some retrofits where you need a little bit of help. You must keep all purchase receipts and invoices for the EnerGuide home evaluation and any retrofit work.
  6. Book a post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation once you have completed all upgrades. This evaluation will assess the performance of the home following retrofits.
  7. Submit the required documentation through the Greener Homes Grant portal to request and receive your grant.

The Canada Greener Homes Loan is still available to Canadians looking to make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable. Homeowners can apply for an interest-free loan between $5,000 and $40,000. This is an unsecured personal loan provided on approved credit with a 10-year repayment term.
