Home Owner Grant Program

About the Program

The Province of British Columbia operates the Home Owner Grant program to help reduce the amount of residential property taxes that British Columbians pay. When your grant is processed, the City of Coquitlam receives the grant amount from the Province of British Columbia.

The Province of British Columbia requires that all eligible homeowners apply for a Home Owner Grant each year. This is to confirm that they still meet the eligibility requirements to receive a grant.

Claim Your Grant

There are two convenient ways to claim your grant.

Electronically

  • Claim Electronic Homeowner Grant
  • Use your 8-digit folio number and access code from your Property Tax Bill
  • Print the confirmation screen or make note of the authorization number
  • You do not need to return the bottom stub of your Property Tax Bill if you claim your grant electronically.

Manually

Complete the bottom stub on your Property Tax Bill and return it to:
Revenue Services
City of Coquitlam
3000 Guildford Way
Coquitlam, BC V3B 7N2

Taxes Paid by Mortgage Company

Your mortgage company can make payment but they cannot claim your grant on your behalf. To complete payment of your taxes, you still need to claim your Home Owner Grant.

You may claim your grant even if you are not making payment on your taxes.

Avoid penalty; claim your Home Owner Grant before the due date.
