Environmental Grants

To encourage citizens to take action for the environment, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has established several grant programs related to waste reduction, air quality improvement, drinking water conservation and the planting of trees and plants.

How to apply for a grant

There are several ways to apply for a grant: 

  • By email
  • Online
  • By mail (Engineering and Environment Department at 2555 Dutrisac Street, Vaudreuil-Dorion,
    Quebec J7V 7E6)
  • In person (at City Hall)

Send the completed grant application form and all required documents for each grant. 

For more information, contact the Environment Section by e-mail at enviro-subventions@ville.vaudreuil-dorion.qc.ca or at 450-455-3371, option 1.

General Conditions

Grants are for residents, not companies. They're in effect throughout the year, subject to availability of funds. The reference year runs from January 1 to December 31. Each household may apply once a year for each grant. Applications are processed for the year in which they are submitted and require a minimum refund of $15 to be eligible. The rebate amount is calculated before taxes.

Please note that the Environment Section will only contact you if your application is incomplete. If your application is complete, you will receive a cheque in the mail within six (6) weeks of your application.

Cloth diapers

Toilet training of a child requires 5,000 to 7,000 disposable diapers—that means 4.5 trees and 22 kg of plastic obtained from 67 kg of crude oil. It also means over a ton of waste that will take more than 500 years to decompose.

To address this problem, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion will reimburse young families 50% of the cost of purchasing or renting cloth diapers, including swim diapers, flat diapers, diaper pants, inserts and liners. Maximum $100 per child and per household.

Conditions:

  • Diapers must have been purchased or rented from a company established in Québec no more than 12 months before the application is submitted.

Required documentation:

  • Application form and proof of residence.
  • Proof (from a competent authority) of the applicant’s parental responsibility and showing that the child is unborn or is less than 12 months old, or that the adoption has taken place less than 12 months ago.
  • Proof of purchase or rental including type(s) of diaper, company name and address, GST and QST numbers, and date of purchase or rental contract.

Consumer products

Based on the principles of refuse/reduce/reuse/recycle/repurpose, more and more zero-waste products are available on the market. To encourage the adoption of such products, the City will reimburse 50% of the purchase cost of reusable products replacing a single-use product up to a maximum of $100/year per household. The amount is increased by 75% if the products were bought from a Vaudreuil-Dorion business. Eligible products are as follows:

Manual lawnmowers and shredder blades for lawnmowers

Grasscycling involves leaving grass clippings on the lawn after mowing, which adds nutrients to the soil and reduces the amount of green waste sent to landfill. Under this grant, up to $50 of the cost of purchasing a manual roller lawnmower (excluding any gas or electric mower) or grasscycling shredder blades will be reimbursed.

  • Purchase made in a store located within the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges in the 12 months prior to the application.

Radon detectors

Radon is a radioactive gas naturally present in the earth as a result of uranium breakdown. It’s colourless, odourless and flavourless, and when released into the air it mixes with other gases. When this happens, the concentration is too low to constititute a health hazard, but radon gas cgan leak into buildings and accumulate there. If the concentration is high enough, it can lead to health problems; in fact, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Québec. In 2019, the City participated in the 100 Kits Challenge organized by the Take Action on Radon Coalition. Read the report (in French) detailing the results of this initiative.

To measure radon levels in residential buildings, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion sells radon detectors* for just $5, including analysis and shipping. For a conclusive test, the detector must be left in the same place for at least three months and up to 12 months. Only one detector may be purchased per household.

Radon detectors have all been distributed for the year 2021. Citizens will be able to purchase them again online starting September 6, 2022. If you have any questions, please contact the Environment Section by email or at 450-455-3371, option 1. 

Conditions:

  • Purchase the detector online on the City's website or by phone at 450-455-3371, option 1 as of September 6, 2022.

  • Pick up your detector on distribution days. In 2022, distributions will be held at the following times:

    - October 5, 6 to 8 p.m. (Opticentre St-Jean-Baptiste)

    - November 5, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Opticentre St-Jean-Baptiste)

    - December 5, 6 to 8 p.m. (Centre Multisports)

  • Follow instructions for long-term testing of indoor air radon, issued by the Association pulmonaire du Québec.

Required documentation:

  • Application form and proof of residence.
  • Proxy or written consent of owner (if applicable).

Radon Mitigation System

If the concentration of radon in a residential building is above the Canadian Action Level (200 Bq/m3), it is recommended that work be done to reduce the concentration of the gas. To help citizens add a radon mitigation system to their homes, the City will reimburse 50 per cent of the cost of installing a radon mitigation system to a maximum of $500 per residence.

Conditions:

  • Installation of the radon mitigation system performed by a PNCR-C certified company located in Quebec.
  • All documents must be submitted BEFORE December 31 of the reference year, the year in which the work was carried out.

  • Proof of purchase of a radon mitigation system specifying the product(s) purchased, the name and address of the company, the GST and QST numbers and the date of purchase.
  • Radon test results.

Removal or replacement of old wood heaters

Non-certified wood-burning appliances that do not meet EPA or CSA B415.1 standards release a huge quantity of fine particles due to incomplete combustion of the wood. These particles affect air quality and penetrate easily into the lungs, posing a danger to public health.

To reduce air pollution, the City offers $250 for removal or $500 for replacement of an old wood heater in Vaudreuil-Dorion homes.

Conditions:

  • Eligibility must be determined by an employee of the Engineering and Environment Division BEFORE the work is done.

To encourage the purchase of these vehicles, the City is offering a $150 reimbursement for the purchase and installation of a home electric vehicle charging station, up to a maximum of one per address.

Conditions:

  • Purchase made in a store located within the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges in the 12 months prior to the application.
