The mortgage loan insurance refund program has existed since 2010 for the MURBs, I believe, and since in 2012 for the single-family homes. Essentially, CMHC offers up to a 25% refund based on the level of energy performance in new builds and retrofits for energy performance. We coordinate the program with Natural Resources Canada, which provides us with its EnerGuide rating systems. People just need to produce their rating system for their home, and then CMHC and NRCan have a seamless system between the two organizations that allows us to acknowledge the increase in energy efficiency through a mortgage loan insurance rebate.
