Property Assessment

An assessment is a value placed on your land and buildings to determine the fair distribution of property taxes. 

Your assessment notice is not a bill but the assessment value will be used to determine your property tax levy (assessed value x tax mil rate = property tax levy). The mil rate is determined in April or May.

Assessment Calculations

The assessed value on your notice is based on the previous year's market conditions (not the current market conditions) and the physical condition and characteristics of the home as of the previous December.

 

You are entitled to receive sufficient information about any assessed property within the municipality and information on how the property’s assessment was derived (as per section 299 and section 300 of the Municipal Government Act). 

Webmap

The assessment roll is publicly available to view at the Municipal Office and is available through the City's Webmap.  If you would like an assessment summary report of your property, please contact the Tax Department. Please allow 3-5 business days to process your report. 

(Prior to accessing Webmap, it is suggested that you read the Webmap User Instructions). Please note that Google Chrome is required for the Webmap. 

Our assessment company, Accurate Assessment Group, did a presentation to Council on May 4, 2015. You can view a copy of the presentation here.
