An assessment is a current market value of your property. The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for classifying and placing a value on all properties in Ontario. MPAC determines a property's assessed value by analyzing the property sales in your area. If you want to find out more information about your property tax assessment you can visit About My Property an MPAC website.

If you require a change of mailing address for your property tax bills please complete the Change of Mailing Address Request Form for Taxation and submit it to the Township.  It is the homeowners responsibility to notify the Township of any changes to ensure their property tax mailing information is up to date.
