Get up to $200,000 to improve affordable housing buildings

The Affordable Multi-Family Housing program offers incentives to help you upgrade to high-efficiency equipment. Working with you at every step, our Energy Solutions Advisors are here to help you make capital improvement projects that will help you save energy and money and keep your building running optimally.

This program is for social and municipal housing providers, shelters, co-ops and eligible market-rate multi-family buildings. Eligible market-rate multi-family buildings will need to demonstrate either at least 30 percent of units are rented at less than 80 percent of the median market rent, determined by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, based on the information gathered during rent roll review by Enbridge Gas, or the building has participated in a federal, provincial, or municipal affordable housing funding program in the last 5 years.
