The requirements and qualifications will vary by program, but there are a few common guidelines of how things often work and the required steps to access a government grant.
Participants may have register with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) at oee.nrcan.gc.ca/register or 1 800 O-Canada (1-800-622-6232) prior to starting your process. Always investigate the requirements before beginning your project.
For renovations you will likely have to hire a certified energy advisor (licensed by NRCan) to perform an in-home evaluation before improvements begin. If your home has already been evaluated in the last few years, a new pre-retrofit evaluation may not be required.
Note: you can book your Durabuilt consultation and order windows and doors prior to your pre-evaluation to guarantee an installation date. It is important however, to schedule and complete your pre-retrofit evaluation prior to the actual renovation work.
Retrofit and Build with Receipts
Once you choose, purchase and install eligible products, participates must always retain and present receipts to access any government grant or rebate
Retain your Durabuilt Labels
Once you complete your project, be sure to retain all of your window and door labels that confirm your products meet the Energy Star
requirements for your zone.
Typically you will also need to do a post-retrofit evaluation, to verify that eligible upgrades were purchased. Once this is complete, your energy advisor will prepare the proper documentation and often submit the claim. You’ll need to verify this with your evaluation company.
