Car Buying Tip - How to Get $1000 From the Canadian Government


 

Here is a car buying tip everyone can sink their teeth into and it is one where you don't have to jump a lot of hoops to get. Back in March 2007 the Canadian Government Budget came out with a rebate under the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program. The rebate enables Canadians to receive a rebate from $1000 to $2000 if they purchase new fuel-efficient cars.

Cars in the model year 2006 and 2007 qualify for the rebate which includes some hybrid electric vehicles and other highly energy-efficient vehicles. You can find the list of cars subject to the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program below:

1. Model year 2006

2. Model year 2007

The main points about the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program you need to keep in mind when car buying or car leasing are as follows:

  • If you bought or leased (leasing longer than 12 months) your car after March 20, 2007 you are entitled to the rebate - but - the car your purchased has to be on the list. Any car bought or leased prior to March 20, 2007 does not apply under the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program.

  • Any person, organization, government can apply for the rebate as long as the car was purchased or leased (leased for more than 12 months) can apply for the rebate as long as the car meets the fuel consumption criteria.

  • Car Dealership demonstrator models are entitled under the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program, again as long as that vehicle meets the program's parameters.

  • You can apply by getting the proper forms at the Dealership where you bought or leased your car, Service Canada Service Centres across Canada or save yourself a run out get it through our car shopping tip center.

  • Only cars bought or leased in Canada are eligible for the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program, if you purchased or leased your car in the US then you aren't entitled to the rebate program.

The paperwork is pretty simple, you fill out the Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate Program form and attach a copy of your sales/lease agreement (copies - do not send your originals) and make sure the dealership has included all the required information - including their address. You also need to send a copy of the vehicle registration and ensure it has your recent address on it. You fill everything out, attach copies of the necessary paperwork that is required and mail it off to the Processing Center in Calgary and wait for your Canadian Government ecoAuto Rebate to come in the mail.

If you are considering buying or leasing a 2008 vehicle and want to consider one to get the rebate, the 08 list hasn't been posted as of yet but keep checking back at your car buying tip center and we will keep you posted of any changes!
