The Canadian grant for greener homes encourages homeowners to carry out energy-efficient renovations. She can cover up to 7,000 $ for eligible projects, such as installing new heating equipment or improving the insulation in your home
  6. Exterior cladding: Choose a cladding suitable for your main residence to improve its aesthetics and its resistance to environmental damage
