Grant table for ecoENERGY
Retrofit – Homes
The ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program can help you invest in
energy-efficient upgrades. Owners of most houses, four-season
recreational properties and low-rise multi-unit residential buildings
(MURBs) can register to be eligible.
The maximum federal grant is $5,000 for applications since
April 2007. If you participated before April 1, 2011, and have not
received the maximum amount for your current property, you can
submit one more application for additional improvements after
June 6, 2011. Owners of multiple dwellings and MURBs could
receive up to $1,000,000.
Steps to apply for the grant
1. Registration: First, register with Natural Resources Canada
(NRCan) at oee.nrcan.gc.ca/register and receive a registration
number. If you do not have Internet access, you can call
1 800 O-Canada (1-800-622-6232).
2. Pre-retrofit evaluation: Hire a local service organization
licensed by NRCan. They will send a certified energy advisor
to perform a pre-retrofit energy evaluation from the attic to

under this program since April 2007, a new pre-retrofit
evaluation is not required.

money you can receive, and the more energy you can save.
4. Post-retrofit evaluation: Complete your renovations and
obtain a post-retrofit evaluation no later than March 31, 2012.
You must show all your receipts to your energy advisor
during the final evaluation to verify that eligible upgrades

The Government of Canada has renewed the ecoENERGY Retrofit
– Homes program
from June 6, 2011, to March 31, 2012, to help homeowners make their
homes more energy efficient and reduce the burden of high energy costs.
Most homeowners receive a grant cheque from the Government of Canada within 90 days after their post-retrofit evaluation. NRCan also transfers data to complementary incentive programs in certain provinces and territories that issue cheques according to their own criteria and deadlines.
