The Assessment department assesses residential, commercial and industrial properties to determine the estimated market value. This value is then used in the calculation of property taxes.

Assessors conduct property inspections throughout the year. While not all properties are inspected, you may see an assessor in your neighbourhood.

Annual assessment notices are mailed to property owners at the beginning of January. The assessed value reflects the value of your property as of July 1 of the previous year, based on economic conditions and its physical condition and characteristics as of December 31 of the previous year.

By sending property assessment notices in advance of the property tax notices, owners have the opportunity to review their assessments and raise any concerns they may have about their assessed value before taxes are calculated.
