Grants and Rebates
ecoENERGY Retrofit Grants and Incentives
Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) ecoENERGY Retrofit program provides financial support to homeowners, small and medium-sized businesses, industrial facilities and public institutions to help them implement energy saving projects that reduce energy-related greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollution, thereby contributing to a cleaner environment for all Canadians.
ecoENERGY Retrofit Homes is available to owners of single family homes including detached, semi-detached and low rise multi-unit residential buildings.

The maximum grant one can receive per home or multi-unit residential building is $5,000; whereas the total grant amount available to one individual or entity for eligible properties over the life of the program is $500,000.
For Small and Medium-Sized Organizations
