Important New Process to Apply for 2021 Home Owner Grant


The home owner grant application process has been changed for 2021. Starting February 16, 2021 home owners can apply for the grant via the Province of British Columbia, as the Province is now processing all applications, including 2020 retro home owner grant applications.

In order to apply for the home owner grant in 2021 you will need your a) roll number from the BC Assessment notice (issued in January), b) your social insurance number, and c) date of birth.

There are two ways of applying for the grant this year, online or by phone:

Website: www.gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant
Phone: 1-888-355-2700 (Active mid-May)

All home owner grant applications must be received by the Province by July 2, 2021 in order to avoid penalties and/or interest.

Town staff do not have access to the home owner grant system and will not be able to apply on your behalf. Please call the number above for any assistance in applying for the home owner grant.
