Financial incentives to build GREEN houses

Incentives for the construction of ecofriendly residences

Are you building a home with energy efficiency certification?

With a mortgage loan from Desjardins, you can get a cash back up to $ 2,000 on the purchase of a new home that is LEED, Novoclimat 2.0 or ENERGY STAR certified. Complementarily, this offer also gives access to the best mortgage rate of the financial institution! This program is unrecognized and the financial institution is eager to conclude with the builders for further promotion.

Another underutilized program is Green House, with a 15% or 25% mortgage insurance premium refund for CMHC insured mortgages. For new homes, CMHC recognizes such certifications as LEED, Novoclimat, ENERGY STAR and R-2000.
