Taxation

The Home Owner Grant is a provincial program created to reduce the burden of residential property taxes on registered owners who occupy eligible residences.

The grant is available to individuals who are Canadian citizens or landed immigrants and reside permanently in British Columbia. A home owner is entitled to the grant if they occupy an eligible residence as their principal residence at the time of application. The grant is not automatically given; it must be applied for each year by the municipal property tax due date.
