I am on CPP disability and just purchased a mobile home. I used my rrsps to make the purchase as a First Time Home buyer. The purchase price was reasonable, but unfortunetly. I had to do more renovations then expected. The home had had a water problem. Would there be any grants available to me, to help with the cost of the renovations?

Hi I’m looking to make my basement into an apartment /granny suite but don’t have the money to front for supplies and labour until it’s rented. I’m a single mom of one daughter and I have been recently diagnosed with generalized anxiety with panic attacks and depression.

Why are almost all the programs for people living in Toronto, Ottawa or Hamilton? What about us in the smaller regions of Ontario? We pay our taxes too. We have a son on disability, both are 65 or older with mobility issues and income under $50,000. Is there no assistance to modify the house to allow a main floor suite by re purposing the existing room?

I am on odsp,and inherited my parents home. This house was built in the late fifties. I know that the windows are at least thirty five years old and need replacing as well as the doors. The electric should also be looked at as I can’t plug in microwave and coffee pot together. I also have some mobility issues that make it difficult to get in and out of the bathtub, so I would be looking to fix up the bathroom and also to have plumbing checked as toilet does not always work. I would also like to switch from oil heating to gas. In closing I would like to know what kind of assistance is in place. Thank you.

[email protected] says
i would like to know who is responsible for the insulation that has been put in my attic with the chip program what Ontario government was offering to people at a price. shame on Ontario government, now i find out from a very decent roofer that i may have to get it removed because of abestos, i am a senior, other roofers did not say anything only rip me off . I found out cause he was checking for black mold, need help fast, haven t got the money to bring in a specialist.It was put in in 1978, i guess ontario or chip did not do their homework and get the list of people that had this insulation put in, or was it a silent no no evil see no evil.

My tenants want to buy the house from me and it is located in Welland, ON. What rebates can they qualify for for first time home owners?
Marlene and Claude Cochran says
We have a fifth generation farm. Our house has the original clapboard siding that has been painted many times over the years but has come to the time that we must do an alternate renovation. We are thinking of putting on composite board siding with a polyisocyanurate insulation sheathing under. We are also replacing the original windows for energy efficient windows. Could you tell me if there any grants we could apply for without going to a heritage designation. We live in Ottawa Valley area. The work will be done in the spring of 2018.
Thanks for any guidance you can give us.

I am a 56 year old women on CPP Disability. February 2017 the Weatherization Program came in and insulated my attic and were suppose to insulate the basement but the wrap would not work. They said they would return the following week. They did not return. When the insulating representative finally returned my call he said that the foam insulation program had been cancelled and there was nothing they could do for me, unless I wanted to pay for it myself. The Weatherization Rep returned to do the final test, he avoided speaking with me as well by staying outside the home after setting up the equipment. I asked if the program could help with weather striping and maybe caulk around the windows to help stop the drafts, but he did not reply. How can I get help winterizing my home? Again

R. Nanji says
The hollow exterior walls in our high rise condo building are not insulated properly therefore our apartment and bedrooms in particular feel like walk-in-freezers in the winter. Electricity bills are too high and we can’t really afford it.
*Is there any help in getting the walls insulated from inside the unit as we live on the 12th. Floor. (It’s about a total of 300 sq. ft. of walls that would need such insulation as the rest is made up of windows).
*I am 74 years old retiree and my soulmate is 69 presently on unpaid compassionate leave as she looks after a sick member in the family. She has also had a knee replacement surgery and is arthritic like myself.
*We would have preferred to have an enclosed shower cubicle to replace the existing tub.
* With our mobility and joint issues we would have preferred to have the tallest elongated toilet seats in our two bathrooms.
Can someone carry out an inspection of our unit to verify these issues please?

My bathroom and kitchen need updating as well.
Are there any grants to help me financially?
Linda Clarqk says
My husband and I are both Seniors who have been living in a rental apartment for 12 years now. We have just purchased a condominium in Ottawa for July occupancy. The 8-storey brick building was built before 1960. Our unit is on the 4th floor. The structure is concrete slab throughout. Our problem is that we have had the stippled ceiling tested for asbestos and it tested positive. To do the job properly (with necessary hazard gear and a knowledgeable and experienced company) and cover the ceiling throughout our unit with particle board is a very expensive proposition. The thing is that we must do it. I have asthma (am on a daily cortisone inhaler) which makes the situation even more critical. Is there a government grant or rebate, at any level of government, that can help with the cost of this asbestos remediation process?
Linda Clarqk says
I need to edit and make one small correction. The condo building was built in the 1970s, and not before 1960.
i need a new roof as my hydro bills are coming in at over a 1000.00 a month i have electric heating i cannot keep this up and i can hardly live now my basement is so cold and my house is so cold my body aches at night please tell me is there anyway i can be helped and from who? Thank you so much in this matter…
