Good news!

The government has earmarked $52.8 million over the next five years to improve wastewater management – and thus preserve the quality of Quebec’s waterways – not to mention our drinking water! Of this amount, $38 million is earmarked to help homeowners upgrade their septic systems.

In the Quebec budget tabled on March 22, 2022, the Quebec tax credit for upgrading septic systems was extended for another 5 years – until 2027. This tax credit represents refundable tax assistance equal to 20% of eligible expenses in excess of $2,500. The maximum assistance is $5,500.

Did you know that between 2017 and 2022, only 16,000 households took advantage of this government subsidy? The Ministry of the Environment estimates that there are 1 million independent septic systems in Quebec. Clearly, this tax credit has great potential to help citizens protect the environment!
