Resilient Roofing Rebate Program

The Resilient Roofing Rebate Program is available to homeowners who are replacing their roof and are looking to upgrade to impact-resistant products to protect their homes from severe weather damage.

About the rebate program

The rebate program is a three-year phased program that started on June 1, 2021 and offers a $3,000 rebate for homeowners who experienced hail damage and have replaced, or plan to replace their roof with a certified Class 4 impact-resistant product.  The program is set to run until May 31, 2024, or until all funding is fully allocated, whichever occurs first.

Who can apply?

Beginning June 1, 2021

  • Homeowners who experienced hail damage in 2020.
    Starting June 1, 2021, the rebate program is open to eligible homeowners on a first-come first-serve basis, who experienced damage to the roof of their home from any hailstorm in 2020. Homeowners can apply if their roof replacements occurred after June 13, 2020. Proof of hail damage will be required.

Beginning January 1, 2022

  • All eligible homeowners in Calgary
    Starting January 1, 2022, the rebate program will open to all homeowners who meet the eligibility criteria and have replaced or plan to replace their roof with Class 4 impact-resistant products after June 1, 2021. Proof of hail damage will not be required. 

Beginning June 1, 2023

  • New home construction
    Starting June 1, 2023, the rebate program will open to anyone who is building a new home and will run until May 31, 2024 or until funding is fully allocated, whichever occurs first.
