Canada Greener Homes Grant Explained: 2022 Eligibility

Posted on October 15, 2022
by Appleby Systems

The Canada Greener Homes Grant program has been very popular among homeowners. It has allowed more than 100,000 Canadians to get a government grant for updating their home and making it more energy efficient. If you haven't applied for one of these grants yet, you'll want to learn how to become eligible in 2022.  

We'll explain the Canada Greener Home Grant eligibility below. 

Who is Eligible?  

Only someone who owns their home and is adjusting to their primary residence can apply for the grant program. If this is you, you will have to:  

  • Offer a property tax bill number to prove you own the home 
  • Offer a valid piece of government ID that matches the address of your home 

Also, you need to make sure that the type of housing you own qualifies. In 2022, the qualifying types of housing include: 

  • Single and semi-detached homes 
  • Row homes 
  • Townhomes 
  • Mobile homes, if they are on a permanent foundation 
  • Floating homes, if they are permanently-moored 
  • Residential portion of mixed-use buildings 
  • Low-rise multi-unit residential buildings 

The home cannot be a new home. Further, only one of the homeowners can apply for the grant program. 

In addition, if you are a member of an Indigenous government or organization, or a housing management body with a formal partnership with an Indigenous group, then your organization may also be eligible to apply to the grant program. 

Which Appliances or Projects Qualify? 

The government is very transparent about which retrofits qualify for the grant program. For everyone, the following kinds of equipment or upgrades are eligible: 

  • Windows and doors 
  • Ground source heat pumps 
  • Air source heat pumps 
  • Cold climate air-source heat pumps 

Those who live in northern or off-grid communities can get a grant for a wider array of HVAC equipment, including: 

The government provides a list of the specific models that are eligible in each category. For example, do not assume that your preferred heat pump is eligible just because it is a heat pump. Each product needs to meet the energy-efficiency standards of the program to be eligible.

How to Apply for a Canada Greener Homes Grant 

The Canada Greener Homes Grant program has its own online portal, and you can complete your application through that portal. Most notably, you should not start your renovations or installation before you have applied to the grant program. You also need a licensed professional to complete almost all of these upgrades, or your project will no longer be eligible for the grant. 

Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate 

In addition to the Canada Greener Homes Grant, Enbridge is offering up to $5000 to improve your home's energy efficiency. To determine eligibility, you will need to schedule an assessment with a registered energy advisor, who will determine which upgrades will save you energy (and money) in the long run.
