VICTORIA, B.C. – The Provincial Ministry of Finance has announced that the 2021 Home Owner Grant threshold is set at over $1.6 million, and homeowners in Northern B.C. may be eligible for up to $1,045.

According to the Government, in Northern B.C., homeowners can qualify for up to $770 and up to $1,045 for homeowners 65 and older.

New for 2021, the Province is taking over full administration of the grant program to ease the burden on municipalities.

Homeowners in all municipalities will now submit their applications directly to the Province instead of through their municipal office. Similar to previous years, applications will open in May when a majority of property tax notices are received.
