Home Owner Grants

Home Owner Grant applications are due July 2, 2019.

The Home Owner Grant is a provincial subsidy program that reduces the amount of property tax you pay for your principal residence. Property owners must meet the eligibility requirements and complete an application form each year.

Do you need help understanding your property tax notice? To determine which grant you may be eligible for view a sample property tax notice with descriptions. ​PLEASE NOTE: Home Owner Grant applications must be filed annually. Any applications that are incomplete, unclaimed, or late, will result in penalty charges. Grants that are not claimed are considered equivalent to unpaid taxes and subject to penalty charges.
