Assessment and Tax Notice
Annual Assessment and Tax Notices are mailed in mid May. If you do not receive your notice, please contact the Assessment and Tax Department. Failure to receive a tax notice or loss of a tax notice will not be accepted as a reason for late payment.
Property tax payment online or by mail is recommended due to COVID-19.
Payments must be made in Canadian funds only.
If you require a receipt, please provide the entire tax notice.
All returned payments will be subject to a service charge.
