Electric Home Owner Grant Frequently Asked Questions
Why did I get an error message when I tried to claim my Home Owner Grant online?
There are several potential reasons:
- Your property changed owners after the property tax levy was generated in early May 2019
- Your property has multiple owners, and the Home Owner Grant has already been claimed for your property
- You are a person with a disability claiming an additional grant for the first time, or you need to provide a copy of the provincial “Level 2” certificate
Do I have to claim my Home Owner Grant electronically?
No. If you prefer, you have the option to claim your Home Owner Grant in person at Courtenay City Hall, through the mail, by fax to 250-334-4241, or dropped in the after-hours mail slot at Courtenay City Hall's main entrance.
