Property owners can submit their Home Owner Grant claim online. With your folio number and access code from your tax notice, you will be able to submit your claim and receive a receipt confirmation instantly. This service is available from late May until December 31 each year.
Low-Income Home Owner Grant Supplement
The January 12, 2007 Provincial budget included additional measures to assist low-income seniors and others with a Home Owner Grant supplement. This program is administered at the Provincial level, not by Maple Ridge. For further details, visit the Provincial government website.
General Home Owner Grant Information
Maple Ridge is required to administer the Home Owner Grant Program on behalf of the Province of British Columbia. Home Owner Grants must be claimed before the due date to avoid penalties. Home Owner Grant applications that are incomplete, unclaimed or late will result in penalty charges. Home Owner Grants that are not claimed are considered equivalent to unpaid taxes.
Failure of an intermediary, such as a financial institution, Canada Post or lawyer to remit the application on behalf of the owner is a private matter for resolution between the parties involved and is outside the tax collector's authority and responsibility.
