- The Canada Greener Homes Grant is retroactive to December 1, 2020. To be eligible for retroactive payment, homeowners must document their retrofit journey. The journey must begin with a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation (which could have been undertaken prior to December 1, 2020), but only work completed after December 1, 2020 that is both eligible and recommended by your energy advisor in their report is reimbursable.
When you register for the Canada Greener Homes Grant, you will have an option to select that you already completed a pre-retrofit evaluation and you will be directed to the next step.
- If you conducted an EnerGuide evaluation on your home after Dec 1, 2020 – you can be reimbursed for both your evaluations and your retrofits if you complete at least one retrofit that is both eligible and recommended by your energy advisor in their report.
- If you conducted an EnerGuide evaluation on your home between April 1, 2020 and November 30, 2020 – you can use your evaluation for the program but you won’t be reimbursed for the evaluation itself. To be eligible, your home retrofits must have been completed on or after December 1, 2020 and be both eligible and recommend by an energy advisor in their report.
- If you conducted an EnerGuide evaluation on your home before April 1, 2020 – you will need a new evaluation.
Only retrofits completed after December 01, 2020, and after a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation qualify for reimbursement.
