Property owners who occupy a property as their principal residence may be eligible for a Provincial home owner grant. Effective 2021, the Province will be entirely responsible for the home owner grant program. All home owners will apply for the grant directly to the Province online or over the phone. The Township of Esquimalt can no longer accept applications.
Eligibility criteria for the program remains the same. To find out more about the Home Owner Grant program, including your eligibility and how to apply, please visit the Province of BC’s home owner grant website at gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant or call their office at 250-387-0555.
The purpose of the Home Owner Grant is to help reduce the amount of residential property tax British Columbians pay.
