The Municipal Property
Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for assessing and classifying
property in Ontario in compliance with the Assessment Act and
regulations set by the Government of Ontario.
Every four years, MPAC mails a
Property Assessment Notice to every property owner in Ontario. The 2016 Notice
reflects the assessed value and classification of your property as of January
Properties are reviewed during
non-Assessment Update years as new homes are built, owners renovate, structures
are demolished and properties change use.
MPAC is legislatively
responsible for updating this information throughout the four-year cycle so
that property owners continue to pay only their fair share. Notices are mailed to property owners each
fall to reflect these types of changes.
