A Comprehensive Guide For Window and Door Replacement Grants in Quebec

Are you thinking about replacing your old windows with new, energy-efficient ones?

You have come to the right place! Welcome to this comprehensive guide to government rebates for windows and doors. At Mystro, we understand the value of energy-efficient, stylish, and durable windows and doors that elevate your property to new heights. In this article, we will explore the various government rebate programs available for homeowners seeking to invest in high-quality windows and doors. Our aim is to assist homeowners in Quebec to better understand the available grants and incentives, enabling them to make informed decisions while upgrading their residential properties.

The Importance of Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors

Energy Efficiency

Before diving into the specifics of the rebate program, it's essential to grasp the significance of energy-efficient windows and doors. These upgrades play a crucial role in reducing energy consumption, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions and a positive impact on the environment. By minimizing the need for heating and cooling, homeowners can help combat climate change while also reducing their energy bills.

Benefits of Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors

Energy-efficient windows and doors offer various advantages beyond environmental benefits. They can enhance indoor comfort, reduce noise pollution, prevent condensation, and protect furniture and interiors from harmful UV rays. Additionally, upgrading to energy-efficient options can increase the value of your home and make it more appealing to potential buyers.

Your Path to Energy-Efficient Homes in Quebec

If you are a Quebec homeowner wishing to replace your windows and doors, there are now two programs available to you: the Quebec Rénoclimat Program and the Canada Greener Homes Grant

Rénoclimat and the Canada Greener Homes Grant are invaluable government-funded initiatives designed to facilitate, expedite, and make eco-friendly home upgrades more accessible for homeowners. These grants support the installation of energy-efficient products that meet or surpass the stringent Energy Star certification standards. If you're considering replacing your windows, patio doors, or exterior doors with environmentally conscious alternatives, you could receive up to $5,000 in grants to offset the costs. 


If you're a homeowner in Quebec, you may be aware of a great grant program called Rénoclimat. This provincial government-managed program aims to assist homeowners in making their homes more energy-efficient and sustainable.

As of March 31, 2018, participants in the Rénoclimat program can benefit from financial assistance when replacing old, inefficient windows and doors with modern, energy-efficient alternatives. Through the Rénoclimat Program, you have the opportunity to access financial assistance tailored to your window and door upgrades. For each existing rough opening housing an Energy Star-rated window or door, you can receive a grant of $60. For example, if you have a bay window consisting of three windows set within the same rough opening, it only qualifies for a single grant of $60.

Canada Greener Homes Grant

The federal government also contributes to greener living through the Canada Greener Homes Grant. Since May 2021, homeowners across the country have been eligible for financial assistance when upgrading to energy-efficient windows and doors.

Similar to Rénoclimat, the Canada Greener Homes Grant also operates on a rough opening basis. However, the grant amounts differ based on the Energy Efficiency of your windows or patio doors.

For each rough opening, you could be eligible for a grant of up to $250. Furthermore, if your upgrade includes a hinged door, you may qualify for an additional grant of up to $125. These grants can be combined, with the maximum financial assistance capped at $5,000.

But that's not all—the Canada Greener Homes Grant even offers an attractive Interest-free Loan option. You could access up to $40,000, repayable over 10 years, making it easier than ever to embrace eco-friendly renovations.

  • Duplexes

  • Triplexes

  • Multiple-unit residential buildings with no more than three stories above ground and a maximum ground area (footprint) of 600 m2.

It's important to note that new homes are not eligible for the grant, and residences must be at least 6 months old from the date of the first homeowner's occupancy to be eligible for evaluation.

Can I apply for both?

Yes, you can apply for both programs. In Quebec, enrolling in the Rénoclimat program is the key to accessing the Canada Greener Homes Grant. By registering with Rénoclimat, you automatically become eligible for both provincial and federal initiatives. This seamless integration ensures you get the most out of your eco-friendly upgrades, combining the advantages of both programs to support your window and door replacement project.
