Home Owner Grant

The Provincial Government offers a Home Owner Grant to reduce the burden of property taxes on owners who occupy eligible residences. The grant amount is dependent on the taxes assessed on a property. At this time, the maximum grant  is $770 or $1045 for seniors 65 years or over, permanently disabled or individuals in receipt of certain war veterans allowances.


When property tax notices are sent out (May 2019), residents of Port Hardy can apply for the Home Owner Grant online.   You will need your roll number and the eHOG Password printed on your Property Tax Notice.
