Trudeau’s green energy retrofit program is not as advertised

Trudeau’s plan puts you further in debt while Andrew Scheer’s plan puts more money in your pocket

Today Justin Trudeau announced interest-free loans for Canadians to renovate their homes. But Canadians who are struggling to make-ends-meet can’t afford a loan to renovate their house while Justin Trudeau continues to hike taxes and make life more unaffordable.

Justin Trudeau wants you to take on as much as $40,000 in debt to make your home energy efficient, while Andrew Scheer has a plan to put more money in your pocket, as much as $3,800.

Trudeau’s green renovation plan will require you to be audited by the government, not once but twice. Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives won’t require the government to come to your house and tell you how to renovate your home.

Trudeau’s Liberals will even make you pay for one of these audits.

What’s worse, to pay for this loan program, Justin Trudeau is going to use the money you paid the CHMC to help wealthy landlords replace the windows and roofs on their investment properties.

In fact, part of Trudeau’s plan only applies to the very rich who can afford expensive homes.

Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives have a plan a better plan to help you get ahead by making Canadians eligible to receive a 20% refundable credit on their income tax for green improvements to their homes of over $1,000 and up to $20,000. This would allow Canadians to save up to $3,800 on their renovations each year.
