About Property Assessment

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for the classification and assessment of all properties in Ontario under the Assessment Act and regulations established by the Provincial government.

Values for the 2016 Assessment Update are derived from market analysis, data collection and preparation, and property level reviews.

If You Receive an Assessment Notice

In May of 2016 all residential property owners received a Property Assessment Notices (PAN) based on January 2016 values for the 2017 to 2020 taxation years.  Non-Residential and mixed class property owners received their new assessments in October 2016.  If you have any questions regarding your assessment or do not receive your notice, please call MPAC at 1 866 296 6722, or visit

If you receive an assessment notice other than the PAN, it could be for any of the following reasons:
How to File Your Appeal
Starting in 2016, property owners have 120 days from the Issue Date of their Property Assessment Notice to file a free Request for Reconsideration.

A Request for Reconsideration (RfR) may be completed through or by filling out a RfR from available at, or writing a letter to MPAC requestion a reconsideration.


NOTE: It is important to understand that the Assessment Review Board (ARB) is a separate independent body apart from MPAC.

How to Switch School Boards

NOTE: Loyalist Township sets property tax rates for the lower tier, and the County sets the rates for the upper tier. The rates will then be multiplied by the assessed value to determine your property taxes. Education tax rates, which are set by the Government of Ontario, will also be applied to the assessed value.
