Regional Rebates

In addition to the above, rebates for certain improvements might be available from your region. These could be as simple as adding an high-efficiency toilet, changing from oil heating to a heat pump, to a heritage home grant. It's worth checking to see what's available as new incentives are added each year, some of which are time sensitive.
