Home Owner Grant
Effective 2021, all home owner grant applications are submitted directly to the province. Residents in Tofino no longer apply through the municipal office.
Home Owner Grant Program Information
The Home Owner Grant is governed and managed by the Ministry of Finance (B.C. Government) to help reduce the amount of residential property tax British Columbians pay. The grant amount is first applied to the school taxes levied on the principal residence and then to municipal taxes. The grant is available to Canadian citizens or landed immigrants who live in British Columbia, and they must occupy the home as their principal residence.
You must apply for the grant each year after you receive your property tax notice and before December 31. The grant is applied toward the current year's property tax.
