Canada Greener Homes Grant 2021 - How to Apply Step by Step
What is offered changes fast as elected officials change – and that can be from top level government to city councillors – so it is virtually impossible to stay on top of them all for every province, state and city. One way I think we can help you keep some money in your pocket if you don’t qualify for any program, is when it comes to choosing the best windows, you'll see a discount link on that page. Ecohome members often have access to manufacturers discounts, you can sign up as an Ecohome member for free here for notices when we have any discounts to offer readers.
After you have checked those pages, if you haven't found all you're looking for, you could also do a web search in your area for programs as well, and if you find any that aren’t listed please let us know, it's often our readers who help us keep those pages current. Thanks and good luck!
