About the Government rebate for heat pumps

The Government of Canada provides rebates for new heat pumps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and help homeowners lower their energy bills.
To receive the rebate, you will need to submit an application. A certified contractor will then conduct an initial audit. After that, you will receive a list of recommended upgrades, and you must complete at least one of the recommendations to proceed. Once the upgrade is complete, you will receive an energy audit to apply for a heat pump government rebate.
Please note that the conditions of the programs may change, so check the information in official sources when choosing a particular program.

Available heat pump government rebate programs

You can apply for 3 programmes, each with its benefits and conditions. Let’s break down each of them:

Canada Greener Homes Initiative

The Canada Greener Homes Initiative helps homeowners make their homes more energy-efficient and eco-friendly. You can receive a grant of between $125 and $5,000, with a maximum grant of $600, to conduct an EnerGuide assessment before and after the renovation.
The program encourages homeowners to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, such as by improving insulation and installing high-efficiency heating systems to reduce energy losses and protect the environment.

Oil to Heat Pump Affordability Program

The Fuel Oil to Heat Pumps program allows homeowners who use fuel oil to heat their homes to switch to electric heat pumps. By installing an air-source heat pump system in a cold climate, yous can save thousands of dollars on your heating bills and contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Note that hybrid heat pump systems for cold climates, such as central ducted heat pumps combined with an oil, gas or propane furnace, are not eligible for grants. The programme covers up to $10,000 for the purchase and installation of air source heat pump systems. Other work such as electrical and mechanical upgrades and the safe removal of oil tanks are also covered.
