How is my property assessed?

Municipal Property Assessment Corporation

Every four years, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) assesses your property’s value. MPAC is responsible for assessing and classifying all properties in Ontario in compliance with the Assessment Act and regulations set by the Government of Ontario. Every municipality in Ontario, including Smooth Rock Falls, is a member of MPAC. It provides municipalities with a range of assessment services, which includes preparing an annual assessment roll for use by a municipality in calculating property taxes.

In 2016, MPAC updated the assessed values of every property in Ontario. Their assessors looked at sales and compared your property to similar properties that have sold in your area. This approach is called Current Value Assessment.

While there are a number of factors that account for the assessment of a property, location is the most important one. As a result, comparing your assessment to similar properties in your area or neighbourhood will help you review your assessment. To find out more about how MPAC assessed properties, check out their website.
