Multi-unit residential building efficiency program

Multi-unit residential building owners are eligible for energy efficiency programs such as home insulation rebates, energy efficient equipment rebates and winter warming help for low income residents.

To be considered for this rebate, each dwelling unit must be separate and self-contained (not a room rented out or “in-law suite”), must be three stories or less and have a footprint less than 600m2, and must be a long term rental.
