The home owner grant application process has changed. Effective January 1, 2021, residents in municipalities no longer apply for the home owner grant through their municipal office. Everyone will now apply directly to the province using a new online system that's easy to use and will process applications faster.
As of February 16, 2021, homeowners can apply for their current year or their retroactive homeowner grants online. For more information, view the Province of BC Home Owner Grant application process.
The Provincial Home Owner Grant Administration program helps reduce the amount of residential property taxes British Columbians pay. The grant is available each year to Canadian citizens or permanent residents who live in BC. If you are eligible, you must apply for the grant every year.
