SUBSIDIES GRANTED BY CERTAIN MUNICIPALITIES

This is particularly the case of the city of Varennes, in Montérégie, which has implemented the Habitation Durable program, aimed at encouraging eco-responsible renovation. Residents of Varennes who wish to move forward with their project to increase the energy efficiency of their home can thus benefit from a grant of up to $3,000.

In Laval and Montreal, many grants are also offered to residents, depending on the borough. Ask your municipality about significant financial assistance for your insulation work!.
