The federal government is providing up to $31 million to help the Yukon government undertake energy-efficient retrofits of institutional, commercial, industrial and residential buildings.
The new funding will support:
– insulation, exterior siding, weatherstripping, door and furnace upgrades for low-income families’ housing units that are between 40 and 50 years old (up to $6.3 million).
– retrofits to First Nations housing, which comprises a significant percentage of the territory’s housing stock (up to $5.2 million).
– energy-saving retrofits to 15 First Nations community buildings (up to $1.7 million).
– high-efficiency retrofits to other residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings (up to $17.8 million).

The Yukon government will contribute an additional $10.3 million toward the same programs.

“By improving efficiency in our homes and businesses, the government is helping people across the Yukon take action in an affordable way,” says Yukon MP Larry Bagnell (pictured).
