Claiming your home owner grant

All home owner grant applications will now be submitted directly to the Province

Effective 2021, all home owner grant applications are submitted directly to the Province using their new online system.

We will no longer be accepting home owner grant applications.

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 tax due date.
