The provincial government of Newfoundland and Labrador recently announced a $30-million residential construction rebate program; providing homeowners with rebates of up to $10,000 for home renovations or new home construction.
Homeowners who successfully apply will get a rebate of 25% of the cost of a renovation on a principal residence, up to a maximum rebate of $10,000. For a new home construction, a rebate of $10,000 is available for a project costing up to $350,000 before HST.
The rebate will be given for work contracted within 60 days from June 8 (when the provincial government’s Alert Level 3 is expected to begin); but must be “substantially complete” by March 31, 2021.
To qualify, a homeowner must use a registered contractor with general liability insurance.
Applications will be available on the Department of Finance’s website and through the Canadian Home Builders’ Association in the coming days.
