HAPPY NEW YEAR!
On behalf of myself and my team, I would like to extend good wishes to everyone in the riding for 2023. We have changed and adapted and continue to move forward in the face of challenges. I believe that 2023 will be an exciting year of revitalization and economic recovery.
Happy New Year! Bonne Année!
All the best,

NEW HOME HEATING GRANT
We’ve just announced the Oil to Heat Pump Affordability Grant which will give low-to-mediumincome homes the opportunity to switch from oil to heat pumps.
It is my understanding that the program will provide funding of up to $5,000 to eligible homeowners before the installations take place, as many folks aren’t able to finance the upfront costs.
The program is scheduled to open up in early 2023, and more information, including eligibility, can be found here: https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy-efficiency/homes/canada-greener-homesgrant/23441
