If you've been considering some home upgrades, you may be able to get some money back from the federal government via the Canada Greener Homes Grant.

The program, which launches on Thursday, May 27, offers Canadians up to $5,000 for making energy-saving improvements to their properties.

This includes things like heater upgrades, solar panels, window and door replacements and more, according to CBC News.

Canadians will be able to apply for the money online from Thursday. While formal details are yet to be announced, the process will reportedly begin with an "energy evaluation" from a certified advisor, who will determine whether an individual qualifies for the funding.

If the homeowner wants to go ahead with the energy-saving changes, they will be reimbursed for the work by the government.

The federal government has already announced a $10 million commitment to recruit, train and mentor thousands of new energy advisors to support the program.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to announce further details of the Canada Greener Homes Grant and what exactly it means for Canadians.
