2022 Invermere Home Rebate program
The Invermere FireSmart Rebate program offers financial support for homeowners to take steps to FireSmart their homes. Through funding received under the Union of BC Municipalities’ FireSmart Community Funding & Supports program within the Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) program, the District of Invermere offers up to $500 rebates to residents who take steps to FireSmart their homes or property. The Invermere FireSmart Rebate program started in 2020, and its impact on the community has been growing every year since then.
