Claiming your home owner grant

Claim your home owner grant online. Starting 2018, there is no longer the option to mail in your grant.

The home owner grant is a provincial program that helps reduce the amount of residential property tax you pay.

Tips for claiming your grant:

  • You must apply for your home owner grant each year
  • Check if you're eligible and for which grant amount
  • If you pay your taxes at your financial institution, claim your home owner grant online separately

To avoid a 5% penalty on the outstanding property tax balance, make sure we receive your claim by the tax due date.
