The following is a list of rebate and incentive programs active throughout Canada. Our team of experienced specialists can help you apply to any active programs. This list will be updated as programs are completed and new ones are launched. Each heading is a link to the listed incentive program website. NRCAN posts hundreds of Financial Incentives by Province. Federal incentive programs can also be searched through the government’s Clean Growth Hub

This list will be periodically updated to reflect new programs being added and the removal of completed programs. 


Greener Neighborhoods Pilot Program: (GNPP) focuses on clusters of low-rise housing and seeks to pilot the Energiesprong aggregated retrofit model in the Canadian market. This model aggregates similar homes and buildings in an entire neighborhood to create mass demand for deep energy retrofits. This scale of project and similarity of buildings can leverage new retrofit approaches such as the use of prefabricated exterior panels to reduce on-site labor time and overall project costs. Applications are open for the Pilot Program until April 5, 2023.

Deep Retrofit Accelerator Initiative: Dune will be participating in the Deep Retrofit Accelerator Initiative, offered by Natural Resources Canada. We aim to accelerate the development of deep retrofit projects in commercial, institutional and mid to high-rise multi-unit residential buildings in Canada. This initiative is a great opportunity for communities and organizations looking to transform their building portfolios with deep energy retrofits. Up to 75% of project planning related costs can be covered by the program, including: energy analysis, recommissioning, project planning and management, training, engineering and design, measurement and verification, and building certifications.
