Property Taxes

Property taxes are billed to all provincial residents once per year, and are payable by residents to their respective municipality. Property taxes are distributed in late May/early June and are due the beginning of July. If you haven’t received your property tax invoice or if you have any questions about how to claim your Home Owner Grant contact Village Hall.

Claiming your Home Owner Grant (HOG)

Before submitting your property tax payment, ensure you have completely filled in your Home Owner Grant information (if applicable). Your Home Owner Grant must be claimed by the due date on your property tax notice to avoid penalty.  Should you have any question about whether you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant, visit the Provincial Government’s Home Owner Grant Qualification page for more information.
