Manitoba Security Rebate Open for Applications

Rate This Article

Applications are open for the Manitoba government’s new security rebate program, which offers a $300 rebate to homeowners, renters and small business owners for purchasing security equipment, Justice Minister Matt Wiebe announced today.

“Every Manitoban deserves to feel safe in their home and their community,” said Wiebe. “Our government committed to this rebate during the election and we’re excited to roll it out today to help lower the cost of cameras, lights and other security measures for homes and small businesses.”

Announced as part of Budget 2024, this one-time rebate is designed to offset the cost of security improvements for Manitoba homeowners, renters and small business owners. Eligible upgrades include security cameras, doorbell cameras, alarm systems, motion detectors, reinforced doors or windows, anti-graffiti film and paints, security gates, pull-down protection shutters and permanent security fencing.

“After having my house broken into, I felt vulnerable in my neighbourhood,” said Scott Henderson, resident, Fort Richmond. “I’m thrilled about the security rebate, which will make video doorbells and cameras cheaper and more accessible.”

Any purchase made after Sept. 1, 2023, is eligible to receive the rebate. Manitobans are encouraged to apply for the rebate early, as applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. The rebate can cover to multiple expenses for a single property or business under the $300 threshold as long as they are submitted in a single application.

Manitobans with multiple homes or business locations in the province will only be eligible to apply once for one location. Ongoing subscriptions or monthly fees for existing security systems are not eligible and only equipment associated with a new security system is covered by the rebate.
