Only one loan is available per property and homeowner. After filing your application, you cannot revise the amount. If the final project cost is less than the approved loan amount, the loan will be decreased to cover the project costs. If the final project costs are higher than the loan amount, the loan amount will not be increased. The homeowner will be responsible for any outstanding amount. Make sure you are working with a reputable contractor who outlines all potential project costs upfront.

Upon being approved for the loan, up to 15% of the project cost will be advanced to the homeowner for initial down payment costs of starting the project.

Before applying for the Canada Greener Homes Loan, you must first apply to, and be approved, for the Canada Greener Homes Grant.
