Desjardins has a complete offer for green renovations. It includes cashback, freebies, great rates and much more.

To take advantage of the program, your renovation plans have to meet the conditions of both Rénoclimat (Quebec only) and the Green Homes Program by having a new EnerGuide label with a rating of 90 GJ/year or under. The EnerGuide rating is the net annual energy consumption of a home based on its energy use and production in gigajoules (GJ) per year. To learn more about the EnerGuide rating, visit the Natural Resources Canada website.

Cashback based on the amount of refinancing

Get up to $500 cashback based on the mortgage refinancing for your green renovations, your EnerGuide rating of 90 GJ/year or under, and your Rénoclimat-compliant renovations.

Discount on your Desjardins Insurance home insurance premium

Get $50 off your home insurance premium when your EnerGuide rating is 90 GJ/year or under and your renovations are recognized by Rénoclimat.

Your monthly plan free for 1 year

The offer is great for members whose transactions are mostly automated.

Get the cash equivalent of the annual cost of your plan, up to the cost of the Unlimited plan.

Free Home Assistance

When you take out Loan Insurance, get free access to a phone service that provides references and advice for home maintenance, repairs, renovations and emergencies.

Donation to an environmental organization

Donations to Ecohome will be made on behalf of members with a Visa Desjardins card with the BONUSDOLLARS program.

The donation will be the equivalent of 0.10% of purchases made with your Visa Desjardins card over 5 years.

Note: You won't receive a tax receipt since Desjardins Card Services will be making the donations.

Eligibility

The offer is for members who already have a Desjardins mortgage and for new members who transfer their mortgage from another financial institution and are financing their green renovations.

The eligible certification program is Rénoclimat (Quebec only).

Conditions

To take advantage of the program, your renovations have to have an EnerGuide 90 GJ/year or under, confirmed following an evaluation performed after work is complete, as required, by Rénoclimat representatives and assessors.

Eligible homes include single-family detached homes, row houses and semi-detached homes, as well as residential rental properties with 4 units or less where the owner is an occupant.

The Green Homes Program applies to minimum financing of $10,000 for renovations (total minimum mortgage of $100,000).

Green Homes Program advantages are conditional upon a 5-year commitment to keeping your mortgage with Desjardins.

In compliance with the National Housing Act, cash rebates may not be factored into the calculation of your down payment.

To be eligible for the reimbursement of the cost of the monthly plan, you must make or have already made the following transactions:

  • Registration for online statements (Desjardins account statements, Visa Desjardins statements and Desjardins Funds statements)
  • Regular or preauthorized bill payments on AccèsD (online or mobile)
  • Registration for epost (at least 1 bill) on AccèsD if members use an eligible provider
  • Registration for direct deposit for payroll and government refunds
  1. Talk about the Green Homes Program with your advisor when you refinance your mortgage.
  2. Get a Desjardins mortgage to finance your green renovations.

You'll get all the advantages of the Green Homes Program if you:

  • Meet the program conditions
  • Show your advisor the EnerGuide rating sticker (90 GJ/year or under) following an evaluation performed after work is complete, as required, by Rénoclimat representatives and assessors.

Due to program procedures and conditions, and to renovation schedules, there may be a delay between the end of renovations and the time you receive your environmental certification.

* Applies to minimum financing of $10,000 for renovations (total minimum mortgage of $100,000).
