Home Owner Grant

Starting January 1, 2021, Municipalities can no longer accept retroactive or new Home Owner Grant applications. For more information please visit  www.gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant or call 1.888.355.2700.

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.

If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant and your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, you are still required to claim your grant with the province. Apply for the Home Owner Grant before the tax due date to avoid a penalty on the grant amount.
