Current

General conditions

The program is for buildings with 1 to 5 dwelling units, including divided co-ownerships. 

Eligibility is based on the property value by floor area in square metres.

If your application is accepted, the grant will be paid once work has been completed.

Starting and completing the work

You must wait until you have received confirmation that your grant application has been approved before starting the work.

You have 18 months to complete the work, starting on the date on which your application was given conditional approval.

Criteria and conditions applicable to all projects

Scope of work

To apply for a grant, you must apply for at least $3,000 in subsidies.

Here are some examples of amounts you could receive:

  • $1,200 to replace a lead water service line
  • $320 to repair a crack in a foundation wall
  • $970 to increase the capacity of an electric service entrance to 200 amperes.

The grant must not represent more than 50 per cent of the actual cost of eligible work.

Mandatory work

If your property includes a boiler, water heater, or a central furnace fuelled with home heating oil, it is mandatory that you replace the appliance during your work project.

Technical requirements

For your project to be eligible for a grant, you must meet the technical requirements described in the Program Guide. For example, a flat roof must be covered with a white membrane. Once your application is approved, we will let you know about all requirements for the work you are having done.

Component 3: Building with 1 to 5 dwellings - co-operatives and not-for-profits

This component is for buildings belonging to a housing co-operative or not-for-profit organization, no matter the property value.

If your property is eligible, the grant amount to which you are entitled is multiplied by 1.5 of the amounts by type of work. For example, supposing you calculate that the total amount of the grant would be $5,000 for your planned work. The bonus means you could obtain 1.5 times this amount, or $7,500.

  • You must tell us.
  • All grant amounts together cannot exceed 80 per cent of the actual costs and fees for the work.
