Effective 2021, homeowners in municipalities no longer apply for the home owner grant through their municipal office. Everyone now applies directly to the province using a new online system that’s easy to use. The system will be available in early 2021.
Although the application process has changed, program details and eligibility requirements have not changed.
The new system helps ensure homeowners receive their full grant entitlement, including the additional grant for seniors or persons with a disability. It also helps process applications faster and reduce fraudulent applications.
Important: Early applications are not being accepted at this time. To be notified when the system goes live, subscribe to our What’s New in BC Property Taxes page
