How to Claim Your Home Owner Grant Online

Homeowner Grant & Property Tax Deferment

Municipalities throughout BC will no longer be accepting Homeowner Grant Applications.  

Eligible residential property owners can now claim their 2021 homeowner grant with the Province.

As soon as you receive your property tax notice, you can apply for property tax deferment.
