Home Owner Grants

The Provincial Home Owner Grant (HOG) program helps reduce the amount of residential property taxes British Columbians pay. The grant is available each year to Canadian citizens or permanent residents who live in British Columbia. You must apply for the grant with the Province every year if you are eligible.  There are three different types of Home Owner Grants; Regular, Seniors and Persons with disabilities. 

Starting May 2021, you will apply for your Home Owner Grant online with the Province using a new online system that's easy to use and will process applications faster.

Visit http://www.gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant or call or phone 1 888 355 2700 for more information.

In order to avoid penalties and interest, apply before the tax due date, starting May 2021.

Municipalities are no longer accepting applications. Program eligibility is unchanged.
