Home Owner Grants

Property owners who occupy a property as their principal residence may be eligible for a Provincial Home Owner Grant. To find out more about the Home Owner Grant program, including your eligibility, go to the Provincial Home Owner Grant website.

Regardless of how your taxes are paid, you are strongly encouraged to apply for the Home Owner Grant directly with the Town of Sidney, using one of the three ways described below. The Home Owner Grant application should be submitted as soon as possible after receiving the tax notice.

YOU CAN CLAIM THE GRANT WITHOUT MAKING A PAYMENT.

There are three convenient ways to apply for the Home Owner Grant.

  • Online – To apply online, you will need the folio number and access code, which can be found on your property tax notice. If you are applying online, please do not complete the application at the bottom of your tax notice.

  • By Mail – Complete the application form at the bottom of your tax notice, detach, and mail to:
    Town of Sidney
    2440 Sidney Ave
    Sidney BC
    V8L 1Y7
    Mail must have a legible post-mark dated no later than the due date to avoid penalty on the Home Owner Grant amount.

  • At Town Hall – 2440 Sidney Ave, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Completed application forms can also be submitted via a drop-box located at the main entrance, available 24/7.
Due to ongoing changes with bank procedures, it is not advisable to submit the Home Owner Grant at your bank. Regardless of how you pay your taxes, we strongly encourage you to apply for the Home Owner Grant using one of the three methods described above.

If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant, an application must be filed each year in order to claim the grant. If you are not eligible for the Home Owner Grant, please do not submit an application.
