Home Owner Grant (HOG)

The Town of View Royal is pleased to offer an online Home Owner Grant application. Click here to get started.

Provincial Home Owner Grants are available to Canadian citizens or Landed immigrants who reside permanently in British Columbia. The Home Owner Grant is designed to help homeowners reduce their property taxes. To qualify for the grant you must occupy an eligible residence and it must be your primary residence. There are two categories of grants: basic and additional. The basic grant may reduce your taxes by as much as $570, while the additional grant may reduce your taxes by as much as $845.

If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant, the completed application is due by the property tax due date. A penalty is applied to any portion of your property taxes that are not paid by the tax due date, this includes the portion covered by the Home Owner Grant, should you fail to apply before taxes are due.
