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 1, 2016.
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.
2016 Assessment Update
MPAC mails a Property Assessment Notice to property owners in Ontario every four years. The Notice you will receive in 2016 is MPAC’s assessed value of your property as of January 1, 2016.

To provide an additional level of property tax stability and predictability, market increases in assessed value between Assessment Updates are phased in gradually over four years. Under the phase-in provision in the
Assessment Act, an increase in assessed value is introduced gradually. A decrease in assessed value is introduced immediately.
Increases in assessed value between the January 1, 2012 and January 1, 2016 legislated valuation dates will be phased in over 2017 to 2020.
