Updated January 4, 2021

The home owner grant is available to eligible homeowners who pay property taxes. Effective 2021, homeowners will no longer apply for the home owner grant through their property tax office. Everyone will now apply directly to the province using a new online system that will be available in early 2021.

Although the application process has changed, program details and eligibility requirements have not.

This new system will help ensure that homeowners receive their full grant entitlement, including the additional grant for seniors or persons with a disability. It will also help process applications faster and reduce fraudulent applications.

Please note: early applications are not being accepted at this time. To be notified when the system goes live, subscribe to the province's What's New in BC Property Taxes page at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/taxes/tax-changes/whats-new/property-taxes
