What information do I need in order to claim my electronic home owner grant?

All you need in order to claim your eHOG is:

  • Your folio number
  • Your access code

You can find these on either your Advance or Main Property Tax notice.


Use your folio number and access code to claim online.

If you do not have your access code, you can find it by:

  • Asking us to mail it to you
  • Checking the front of a previous years' property tax notice
  • Visiting City Hall in person. You will need to present identification in order to receive the information. While there, you can apply for your home owner grant

Because of privacy protection laws, we can’t give you your access code over the phone, or by email.

Ask. Tell. Connect.
