Property Tax Exemptions

Annually, City Council may provide a municipal Property Tax Exemption for properties and facilities owned by certain non-profit organizations.  The criteria for these exemptions are outlined in City Council Policy No. 317. 

Applications must be received by June 29 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. For example, an application for a 2019 Permissive Tax Exemption must be received by June 29, 2018.
