Property Assessments

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for establishing the assessed value for all Ontario properties.

MPAC analyzes property sales in our community and also considers other factors impacting market value such as location, lot dimensions, living area, age of property, renovations or additions and quality of construction.

If it is your opinion that the assessed value of your property is different from the market value, please contact MPAC directly .

Reassessment

MPAC updates the assessed values of all properties to a new common valuation date; currently every 4 years.  Prior to each reassessment, a Property Assessment Notice is issued by MPAC to every property owner in Ontario.

Your Property Assessment Notice shows the assessed value of your property based on the new valuation date.  The market increases between the prior and new assessment values are phased in over four years. All market decreases are applied to the current taxation year.

If you do not agree with the valuation MPAC has attributed to your property, you have the option of submitting a Request for Reconsideration form to MPAC. You may also be eligible to file an appeal with the Assessment Review Board, an independent tribunal of the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General. All assessment-related inquiries should be directed to MPAC.

PLEASE NOTE:

The Ontario Government has made a number of changes to the Request for Reconsideration (RFR) and Appeal processes including changing the deadline for filing an RFR with the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).  For information on the deadline for filing an RFR, visit www.aboutmyproperty.ca or call 1-866-296-MPAC. Please have your tax roll number available when you call.
