Property and business taxes are key sources of revenue for any region. These revenues allow the County to deliver the many programs, services and utilities on which ratepayers rely.

To ensure all property and business owners pay their fair share of municipal taxes, The County conducts assessments that reflect the market value for the property or the typical net annual rental rate for business as of July 1 of the previous year, as provisioned by the Municipal Government Act.

County assessors conduct site inspections annually, and update property assessments accordingly.
