The government of Canada is providing $2.6 billion to the sector through this program over the next seven years. It will provide:
- grants of up to $5,000 for energy efficiency retrofits, supported by an EnerGuide evaluation to up to 700,000 Canadians;
- up to $600 to support the cost of EnerGuide evaluations; and
- jobs by supporting recruitment and training of EnerGuide energy advisors to meet the anticipated increased demand.
The Canada Greener Homes Grant will help Canadians make their homes more comfortable and affordable to maintain, support Canada’s environmental objectives and create jobs in communities across the country.
Homeowners will be able to learn about their home’s energy performance and improve its energy efficiency and resiliency by putting in place energy efficient retrofits that they might not otherwise have considered.
