City of Toronto
The City of Toronto’s $9 million Home Energy Assistance Toronto (HEAT) program, which is available to all Toronto homeowners participating in the Canadian government’s ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes initiative, provides up to $1,000 in insulation grants in addition to existing grants and rebates from the Canadian and Ontario governments.
Toronto HEAT insulation rebates
Under the Toronto HEAT program, Toronto homeowners can receive up to $200 for ceiling insulation, up to $500 for exterior wall insulation, and up to $300 for foundation insulation, for a total of $1,000.
These grants are given on top of more than $10,000 in combined energy renovation grants available to Toronto homeowners from the governments of Canada and Ontario. The grants are available to any Toronto homeowner who verifies their home insulation upgrades with a follow-up ecoENERGY audit between August 6, 2009, and March 31, 2012.
“The ecoENERGY audit is Toronto homeowners’ ticket to up to $11,000 in government grants and rebates,” says Peter Moffatt, president of Building Insight Technologies, a leading Canadian energy audit company. “By having an energy audit, homeowners can get grants and find out how to make their homes more efficient.”
“Providing grants to make the homes of Torontonians more energy efficient benefits us all,” says Toronto Mayor David Miller. “Grants like this allow for the creation of green jobs and decrease our overall energy demands, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions. HEAT will empower residents to act locally to not only save money but to clean our air and protect our environment as well.”
The City of Toronto estimates that for each home insulated through the HEAT program, the city will save between 0.5 and 1.2 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year. Insulation reduces home energy loss by as much as 30 percent and more.
Toronto homeowners who heat their homes with electricity can save, on average, more than 2,000 kWh of energy, and over $150 on their annual energy bill. Toronto homeowners who heat their homes with natural gas can save even more: on average, more than 2,000 kWh of energy, and over $150 on their annual energy bill.
Grants + rebates improve renovation budgets
The Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Natural Resources, says, “Canadians across the country are participating in the ecoENERGY Retrofit Homes program. This program is creating and protecting jobs in our communities and putting money in the hands of Canadians at a time when they need it most.”
The Toronto Atmospheric Fund estimates, with input from local contractors, that the combined grants could offset about 70 percent of the average cost of home insulation improvements.

governments can offset costs for more improvements, such as
