The Provincial Home Owner Grant (the "HOG") program helps to reduce the amount of residential property taxes that homeowners pay on their principal residence. It is available to homeowners that pay property taxes to a municipality or to the province if they live in a rural area.

If you qualify for the HOG, you must apply every year to receive it, please note that only one qualifying owner can claim a grant for one property each year.

You must apply before the tax due date of July 2, 2024 to avoid penalties.
