Canada Greener Homes Grant

Steps to Plan Your Window Replacement

Register Online Sign in to the Portal

Step 1: Learn about the initiative

Check that you meet all the eligibility criteria for the grant, review the requirements, and learn more about the process.

Step 2: Register and book your pre-retrofit evaluation

To participate, you must register online on the Greener Homes Grant portal. Up to 700,000 grants will be available.

Your pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation is the next step in improving the energy efficiency of your home. This evaluation is required before you undertake your retrofits and will be performed by an NRCan registered energy advisor.

Step 3: Plan, document and complete your home retrofits

After you receive the EnerGuide evaluation in the portal from your energy advisor, you may review the recommendations for your home retrofits and decide which retrofits work best for your budget and renovation plans.

You will need to complete at least one retrofit that is both eligible and recommended by your energy advisor. You can find your home’s recommendations in your Renovations Upgrade Report and on the online portal.

Step 4: Book your post-retrofit evaluation and apply for reimbursement

Once you have completed your home retrofits, you can start the reimbursement process. To be reimbursed, you need to book your post-retrofit evaluation and submit all your required documents online or by mail.

Once your evaluation is complete, a new EnerGuide label and a post-evaluation report will show you how much more energy-efficient your home has become.

Step 5: Receive your reimbursement

Before the government finalizes your reimbursement, you will need to confirm your grant total in the portal. This is the last step before you receive your cheque.
