PROPERTY ASSESSMENT IN ONTARIO

MPAC is responsible for assessing and classifying more than five million properties in Ontario in compliance with the Assessment Act and regulations set by the Government of Ontario.

Municipalities determine revenue requirements, set municipal tax rates and collect property taxes to pay for municipal services. Education tax rates, set by the Ontario Government, may also be applied using the assessed value.

It is the accuracy of our assessments that help to ensure property owners pay their fair share, and nothing more.

FOUR-YEAR CYCLE

Every four years, we mail a Property Assessment Notice to every property owner in Ontario. Your 2016 Notice reflects the assessed value and classification of your property as of January 1, 2016. Your 2016 assessed value will be used to calculate your property taxes for the 2017-2020 property tax years.

We continue to review properties during non-Assessment Update years as new homes are built, owners renovate, structures are demolished and properties change use.
