Home Owner Grant

The Home Owner Grant is a property tax assistance program offered by the Province of British Columbia, and is available from late May to December 31 each year. This program helps homeowners reduce the amount of taxes they pay on their homes. The funds raised from the property taxes you pay are used to provide programs and services.

To be eligible for the Home Owner Grant, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and ordinarily reside in Burnaby, British Columbia. You must be the owner and occupant of an eligible residence and live in it as your principal residence. You must qualify at the time you submit the application form.

If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant (column B or C on your Tax Notice), you must complete the application for the grant and forward it to the Tax Office by the July due date annually to receive credit for the grant amount and avoid penalties.
