New Tecumseth, CAN toilet rebate program


New Tec offers rebates for using less water

NEW TECUMSETH – New Tecumseth is offering a little incentive for residents looking to reduce their water use.

To help offset the cost of replacing high water consumption toilets with low flush toilets, the town is offering a $50 rebate per toilet. For residents buying a rain barrel, the town is offering a rebate of 50 per cent of the cost of the barrel (to a maximum of $50).

By installing an EcoEnergy low flush toilet, the town says people can help the environment by reducing water consumption and save money on your water bill. Rainwater collected through outdoor rain barrels can be used to water your lawn and flower garden or washing the car.

Each residence is eligible for two EcoEnergy toilets and one rain barrel for the first year of the Ministry of Environment-mandated program.

Rebate forms are available online at or by calling 905-729-1270 ext. 432.

Toronto, ON may make low flow mandatory and cancel toilet rebates


Toronto is just one of the handful of Ontario municipalities offering a rebate for homeowners who’ll install a water-conserving toilet this year, but a new proposal from the Premier’s office is planning on making them mandatory. If this proposal is accepted, it’s a measure that would likely cancel the rebates. Other provincial municipalities, such as Innisville, have determined that rebate and incentive water conservation programs would be far too costly, and in Innisville alone it’s estimated that it would cost them at least $1.6 million to implement one. Meanwhile, Barrie’s toilet replacement rebate program is barely staying afloat and city councillors recently approved a $50,000 boost because of unexpected costs.

Currently, the Toronto rebate program promises up to $75 if you replace a water-wasting toilet with a water conserving one, but the legislation put forth would make it mandatory for all retailers across the province to sell only low-water toilets (six-litres as opposed to 13-litres) by January of next year. Toilets generally use up 30 per cent of a home’s water and annually, a low-flush toilet cuts this water consumption by half.

Coincidentally, on the same day the new measures were proposed the country’s largest retailer of hardware and home renovation products, RONA, announced that it would no longer sell any toilets with volumes that are more than six-litres.

This proposal comes soon after the federal government cancelled the Canadian ecoENERGY retrofit rebate program, which offered homeowners up to $5,000 in grants and rebates when they made energy-saving renovations before March 31, 2011. For now the provincial programs are still in effect, including the Ontario Home Energy Savings Program, which similar to the federal program offers homeowners up to $5,000 in grants and rebates for energy-efficient renovations.

Comox Valley, BC toilet rebate


The Comox Valley Regional District has announced two water conservation rebate opportunities that will help achieve a 27-per-cent reduction in water consumption by 2014.

Property owners who replace old, water-guzzling toilets built before September 2008 with high-efficiency (4.8 litre/flush) or dual flush toilets, approved by Canadian Standards Association, will be eligible for a $75 rebate.

There is a maximum of two toilet rebates per installation address. Residents who received a toilet rebate under the 2009 program are eligible for one additional rebate for a toilet replaced under the 2010 program. Funding available this year will allow for the replacement of 1,600 toilets.

The CVRD will honour rebate applications for toilets purchased under the 2009 pilot program, including six-litre flush toilets, as long as the sales receipt for the new toilet, and the recycling receipt for the old toilet, are dated between Aug. 15, 2009 and April 30, 2010. All unfunded 2009 applications must be submitted before June 1, 2010.

Residents will also be eligible for one rain barrel or cistern rebate under the 2010 program. A rebate of up to $50 will apply to the purchase of a rain barrel or cistern between 150 and 499 litres, and up to a $150 rebate for those equal to or greater than 500 litres.

The rebate programs apply to homes connected to the Comox Valley water system, including the Town of Comox, City of Courtenay and the Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco, and Greaves Crescent water local service areas.

For full eligibility requirements, visit The first step will be to review 2009 applications that came in after last year’s funding was exhausted. Cheques will be mailed to those who qualify. 2010 applications will be processed for those who qualify on a first-come, first-serve basis while funding lasts.

Application submissions do not guarantee a rebate.

Canada, BC: Comox Valley Regional District Goes Low Flow with Toilet Rebate Program

Source: British Columbia News,

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) will launch a toilet rebate program by the end of September as part of the plan outlined in the draft water efficiency strategy intended to achieve a 27 percent reduction in water consumption by 2014.

The Comox Valley Regional District wants to help toilets help the environment.

A toilet rebate program will be launched next month, as part of their draft water efficiency plan designed to achieve 27-per-cent reduction in water consumption by 2014.

“This is a fabulous opportunity for the CVRD to reduce both water consumption and sewage flows,” said Fred Bates, CVRD board chair. “Using less water per flush will both conserve our valuable resource and save us all money in the long run.”

For residents replacing an old water-guzzling toilet in residences built prior to Jan. 1, 2005, the CVRD will offer homeowners, property managers and plumbers a $75 rebate — one rebate per single-family home — for installing water-efficient toilets.

The rebate program applies to installations connected to the Comox Valley water system including the Town of Comox, City of Courtenay and the Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco, and Greaves Crescent water local service areas.

Toilets using 13 litres or more per flush must be recycled and replaced with a CSA-approved new low-flow model accompanied by a receipt dated after Aug. 15, 2009 to be eligible for the $75 rebate.

A recycling receipt for the old toilet must be obtained.

Initially, old toilets can be returned to the Comox Valley Waste Management Centre, open 8:30 a.m. 5:30 p.m.

Applications will be available by the end of September from the CVRD, City of Courtenay or Town of Comox offices or by visiting

Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis while the funding lasts.

Toilet rebate program in the City of Camrose, AB Canada

Source:, By JEFFREY KU/City of Camrose

The City of Camrose is bringing back the Low Flow Toilet Rebate Program for 2009’s summer season from July 1 to Aug. 31. The rebate offers $80 to those who replace an older, high volume toilet with a eligible, newer low-flow model in their home with a limit of one per household for purchases after Oct. 31, 2008 and installations before Aug. 31, 2009.

The City of Camrose is running the Low Flow Toilet Rebate Program again hoping that it will encourage and educate the citizens of Camrose on the subject of water conservation. Conserving water will not only benefit the environment from which the resource is taken, but it will also benefit the City by reducing the load put on the water treatment plant and citizens and reducing their water bills by using less water. All citizens of the City of Camrose who live within city limits are eligible for this rebate. To qualify for the program, the City of Camrose must receive the following:

1. The address in which the toilet is to be installed.

2. Receipt of purchase of new, approved low-flow toilet.

3. Pictures of the washroom, before and after installation.

4. Evidence that the toilet was made none functional.

Camrose is running this program alongside, but having no affiliation with the federal government’s Home Renovation Tax Credit and ecoENERGY Retrofit—home grant programs that offer tax benefits for those doing certain home renovations.

Also, with a full 3.5 ” trapway, these toilets virtually never clog. All of Caroma’s toilets are on the list of WaterSense labeled HET’s and also qualify for several toilet rebate programs available in the US.
