Home Owner Grant Program
The Provincial Home Owner Grant application process has changed. Starting January 1, 2021 municipalities will no longer accept retroactive or current year Home Owner Grant applications. Homeowners must now apply directly through the province at gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant or by phone at 1-888-355-2700.
Due to high call volumes, the Province is encouraging homeowners to use the easy and efficient online option.

About the Program
The Province of British Columbia operates the Home Owner Grant program to help reduce the amount of residential property taxes that British Columbians pay. When your grant is processed, the City of Pitt Meadows receives the grant amount from the Province of British Columbia.
The Province of British Columbia requires that all eligible homeowners apply for a Home Owner Grant each year. This is to confirm that they still meet the eligibility requirements to receive a grant.
Taxes Paid by Mortgage Company
Your mortgage company can make payment but they cannot claim your grant on your behalf. To complete payment of your taxes, you still need to claim your Home Owner Grant.
You may claim your grant even if you are not making payment on your taxes.
Avoid penalty; claim your Home Owner Grant before the July 2 due date.
