The Home Owner Grant program is a Provincial Government program designed to help homeowners with their property taxes. Please contact Home Owner Grant Administration for eligibility requirements.

If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant, you must claim it each year. Once you determine which grant amount you are eligible for, choose one of the following methods to claim your grant:

Note:  Whichever method you choose to claim your grant, your application must be submitted by the close of business on September 30th. You do not have to make a payment at the same time in order to claim your grant.

If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant and your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, you are still required to complete and forward the application to our office by the tax due date to avoid a penalty on the grant amount.
