Council & Committee Meetings

Apportionment of Land Taxes

The Apportionment of Land Taxes is a process completed in adherence to Section 356 (Division into parcels) of the Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c.25 which permits municipalities to apportion property taxes levied against an original parcel of land amongst newly created parcels.  This process ensures the accurate distribution of property taxes amongst the new parcels of land.

In 2019, City Council approved By-law 19-098 which delegated authority to staff to hold meetings, provide notice and make decisions for the adjustment of taxes including the Apportionment of Land Taxes under Section 356.

The Ontario Ombudsman has determined that staff meetings pursuant to By-law 19-098 are not subject to the open meeting requirements under the Municipal Act.
