Local governments are responsible for most of the direct services that make our region livable.
This includes public safety, clean water, well maintained streets, waste and sewage management, recreation, and stewardship of our parks and wilderness areas.
Funding for these services is provided largely through your property taxes.

Right now, it’s as important as ever to pay your municipal property taxes on time. We rely on this revenue to deliver the important municipal services you've come to expect. If your financial situation means you may not be able to pay your property taxes on time, please consider deferring your property taxes. You may also qualify for the financial assistance that the provincial and federal governments are making available.
