***IMPORTANT*** - HOME OWNER GRANT APPLICATION CHANGE

The Province of BC has changed how Home Owner Grant's are claimed.  All property owners must now claim their current year home owner grant by submitting their application directly to the Province. 

How to Apply:

Eligible BC homeowners can apply for the 2021 homeowner grant via: 

  • 24/6 online: gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant 
  • With an Agent: Toll-Free at 1-888-355-2700, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5pm
  • Starting May 17, 2021 - 24/7 using a *voice recognition application: Toll-free at 1-888-355-2700 

*Homeowners can use the voice recognition application if: 

  • Their eligible home is a principal residence, and
  • They are applying for a basic or additional grant

Note: if a property owner uses the self serve voice recognition option, they can connect with a live agent if they wish at any time

Municipalities are no longer permitted to accept Home Owner Grant Applications on behalf of the Province. 

Utility, Property Tax, Development and other payments can be made in person at the District Office, dropped off in the secure drop-box at the District Office front entrance, through your financial institution's online banking, or online via the District's website here.  COVID protocols are in place with limited and controlled access to the District Office.
