Home Owner Grant Applications (*New Legislation for 2021)
On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, the B.C. government introduced legislation to amend the Home Owner Grant Act.

These amendments are the first step to centralizing the home owner grant program for the 2021 tax year. The proposed amendments do not change the eligibility criteria for the program. Regulations are required to enable the Province to begin accepting applications.

What this means:

  • The Province of British Columbia will be entirely responsible for the home owner grant program for the 2021 tax year.

  • All home owners will apply directly to the Province online or over the phone. The website link can be found here: Provincial Home Owner Grant Site

  • The provincial application will be available early in the new year.

  • Effective January 1, 2021, the District of Lantzville will no longer be allowed to accept retroactive or new applications for the grant and instead are directing homeowners to Provincial Home Owner Grant Site for further information.

    New for 2021 and future years - Contact the Province of British Columbia for all inquiries regarding Home Owner Grant Programs.
