Property Tax Permissive Exemptions

Annually, City Council may provide a municipal Property Tax Permissive Exemption for properties and facilities owned by certain non-profit organizations. An organization must qualify under Section 224 of the Community Charter and comply with the City’s policies, plans, bylaws and regulations to be eligible for a permissive tax exemption.

The criteria for these exemptions are outlined in City Council Policy No. 317.

Applications must be received at City Hall by June 30 in the year prior to the taxation year for which the exemption is requested in order to be included on the applicable annual Permissive Tax Exemption Bylaw. 

Applications for 2024 Permissive Tax Exemptions must be received by June 30, 2023.
