This new name comes with enhancements that benefit homeowners like you. You can apply for a partial premium refund of 25% if you’re CMHC insured and have an energy efficient home.
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.
