Help homeowners save money on energy costs & lower GHGs

Improving the energy performance of residential buildings can help Canadians save money, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and drive investment in the local economy. But homeowners face several barriers to upgrading their homes, including limited access to financial and technical assistance to complete these improvements.  

By offering a local financing program for home energy upgrades, municipalities can help residents improve the performance, comfort, and affordability of their homes, while also supporting local energy professionals and meeting their climate change goals. GMF’s $300 million Community Efficiency Financing (CEF) initiative supports municipalities to create, launch and scale-up innovative financing programs for residential energy projects.
