Property Taxes and Assessments
Your property taxes include municipal taxes and provincial taxes that the municipality collects and then remits to the province. The breakdown of what is municipal taxes and what is provincial can be found here.
The 2019 budget will require an average increase of 3.7% in Residential municipal taxes and 2.2% in Commercial/Industrial municipal taxes. The 2019 impact on a typical single family homeowner based on an assessed value of $300,519 is listed here.

Taxes are billed based on the calendar year and are due on June 30th of each year. For 2019 you may pay up to and including July 3, 2019 without penalty. There are several options for paying taxes. You may pay in person, use the after hours mail slot at the front door, at most financial institutions, for telephone banking or online banking. (Please check with your financial institution.)
We also offer a Pre-Authorized Withdrawal Tax Payment program which is a monthly automatic withdrawal payment program.
