Claiming your home owner grant

Home owner grant applications must be submitted directly to the Province

Effective 2021, municipalities can no longer accept home owner grant applications.

Learn more and submit your grant application

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 the Province receives your application by the main property tax due date.
