Basement insulation for the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate

I like to improve my basement insulation to qualify for the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate program.
Please see the attached photo for my current basement R12 insulation.
I am thinking of keeping current R12 insulation and insert R12, 24" on center insulation on lower half of wall,
then join upper vapour barrier to new vapour barrier being installed on lower half.
Is that a good idea?

Please review or suggest the materials and tools needed:
- Tuck Tape
e.g. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/t...-0676000p.html

- Mastercraft Stapler Light Duty
e.g. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/m...7936p.html#srp

- Vapor barrier

No idea what the rebate program requires and I assume this is Canada which has some differences with how they do things.

One thing that is not recommended is installing a vapor barrier in a basement but as noted its Canada!
