CMHC-Eligible Energy-Efficient Building Programs
CMHC encourages the development of more energy-efficient homes by making eligible a broader range of home building programs. Homes built under the following programs qualify for a 10 per cent mortgage loan insurance premium refund, and a premium refund for a longer amortization period (if applicable) when CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance is used to finance their purchase or construction.
Other energy-efficient homes can also qualify
If the home you are purchasing or building does not belong to one of these programs, it may still be eligible.
*Depending on the closing date of your purchase, the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) Energy-Efficiency Rating required differs:
