Resilient Roofing Rebate

The Resilient Roofing Rebate Program is available to homeowners who are replacing their roof and are looking to upgrade to impact-resistant products to protect their homes from severe weather damage.

The AARA is one of the associations involved in the Resilient Roofing Rebate program launched by the City of Calgary on June 1, 2021. The rebate program is a three-year phased program that offers a $3,000 rebate for homeowners who experienced hail damage and have replaced, or plan to replace their roof with a certified Class 4 impact-resistant product.  The program is set to run until May 31, 2024, or until all funding is fully allocated, whichever occurs first. One of the requirements to be eligible for this program is to have a roof installed with a Class 4 IR hail resistant roofing product that is inspected by a third party AARA or ARCA approved inspector. If the contractor used was an AARA or ARCA member at the time of roof replacement the roof will not require a third party inspection to be eligible for the rebate program.

** Due to the popular demand of the Roofing Rebate Program and a high volume of applications, all new submissions to the Resilient Roofing Rebate Program are being waitlisted.  Please note, submitting an application does not guarantee funding.

Applications submitted between Jan. 1 and Feb. 17, 2022, will be reviewed in the order they were received. Those interested in applying for the waitlist, can submit their application and will be contacted if your property meets the eligibility criteria and if funding is still available.
