Canada Greener Homes Update



From our friends at HPSC - Home Performance Stakeholder Council


On Friday, April 12, 2024, the Federal government provided an update on their housing plan including the announcement of a $903.5 million investment to launch the Canada Green Buildings Strategy. As part of the new strategy, the Federal government has launched the Canada Greener Homes Affordability Program. It appears this program is the long awaited update on next steps for the now closed Greener Homes Grant

 

According to the Canada Greener Homes Affordability Program website, the program is open to affordable housing providers to help them complete deep energy retrofits on existing multi-unit residential buildings. Unfortunately, no updates have been provided on future federal support for single-family home retrofits. 

 

The HPSC will continue to advocate for programs and initiatives that support affordable home performance; as always, we will provide updates as they become available through our ENews. 

 

A reminder that the federal Canada Greener Homes Loan is still open for application and applies to single-family homes. Provincial rebate programs for single-family homes also remain open for application.
