CMHC Eco Plus (formerly CMHC Green Home)
Energy-efficient housing made more affordable with Mortgage Loan Insurance.
CMHC Eco Plus offers a partial refund on the cost of mortgage loan insurance. Buy, build or renovate for energy efficiency and you may be eligible for a refund of up to 25% of your premium.
Effective June 20, 2022, CMHC’s Green Home program is now CMHC Eco Plus.
With the new name are also enhancements to the program. Now, you can apply for a partial premium refund of 25% if you’re CMHC insured and have an energy efficient home.
CMHC Eco Plus supports CMHC’s commitment to reducing the impact of housing on climate change and the Government of Canada’s plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. As energy efficiency standards improve, so will the criteria for the Eco Plus program. It will include more certifications and continue to align with Natural Resources Canada’s EnerGuide rating system.
