Our Action Starts at Home – Home Energy Retrofit Initiative

Home Energy Retrofit Initiative

Announced in the November 30th Supporting Canadians and Fighting COVID-19: Fall Economic Statement 2020, the Our Action Starts at Home – Home Energy Retrofit initiative will be available to homeowners retroactive to December 1, 2020. We recognize that when it comes to energy in Canada, where you live matters. This initiative will complement energy efficiency programs available today in each region

The initiative will provide 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 for eligible retrofits and one million free EnerGuide energy assessments. Homeowners will have to get an EnerGuide audit before becoming eligible for the grants. They will also have to document the work done, including before and after photos. The website states NRCan is working to train enough auditors to meet the anticipated demand. The organization is also promising low-interest financing options in addition to the grants.
