Window and Door Retrofit Grants – Government of Canada
There are a number of options for upgrading the energy efficiency of your windows and doors. A total window and frame replacement with new, high-performance ENERGY STAR® certified windows can make your home more comfortable, save energy, and help fight climate change. Learn more about replacing your windows and doors.
Eligibility criteria for a grant:
All equipment must be purchased in Canada.
Online purchases are only eligible if they are ordered from a distributor located in Canada.
The equipment must be on one of the eligible product lists referenced in the following table. All eligible product lists are available in an online searchable format.
Keep the ENERGY STAR labels on your windows and doors until after your post-retrofit evaluation.
A complete new window or door and frame replacement can be inserted into the existing frame of an old window or door, but replacements of only the glass, sash or door without a frame are not eligible.
Each rough opening is eligible for a grant of up to $250, up to a maximum of $5,000.
*A rough opening* is defined as a structurally stable opening in an outside wall. The opening may be surrounded by framing members (e.g., studs, lintels) or by solid material (e.g., concrete, solid wood logs). A rough opening serves the purpose of installing one or more windows or doors. The Canada Greener Homes grant initiative incentive is offered per rough opening, as opposed to per number of windows or doors installed within the opening. For example, a bay window with three window units installed into one rough opening is eligible for only one grant. Skylights are not eligible.
ENERGY STAR certified means that the model meets or exceeds the ENERGY STAR levels. Each certified model comes with a temporary label showing that the unit is ENERGY STAR certified. Westeck Windows and Doors carries a range of products that are ENERGY STAR certified.
