Property Tax Due Date – First working day after July 1st
Property taxes are one of the City's biggest revenue sources, and are critical to the health and livability of our city.
Your tax dollars help pay for many of our essential services, such as police, fire fighting, and emergency rescue.
We also rely on property tax revenues to build stronger communities.
Your payments help us fund our recreation and community centres, libraries, parks, and much more
When are Property Taxes Due?
Property taxes are due the first working day in July, to avoid a penalty of 10%. Payments and a properly completed home owner grant application, if eligible, must be received by the property tax due date, no exceptions.
Receiving Your Property Tax Notice
We prepare and mail approximately 19,000 property tax notices annually. All property tax notices are mailed annually in the third week of May.
You do not need to have your property tax notice in order to pay your property taxes. You are responsible for paying your taxes whether or not you have received your notice. Property owners who have not received their tax notice by the second week of June should contact the Revenue Branch at 250-545-1361.
Paying Your Property Taxes
There are many ways you can pay your Property Tax Notice: by mail, in person at City Hall, at your ATM or bank, through your mortgage and online through your financial institution.
