Property Assessment

BC Assessment develops and maintains real property assessment through British Columbia and each year BC Assessment produces assessment information to tax authorities. The Assessment Act requires that properties be assessed as of July 1st each year.

These assessments, along with the City's budget requirements, are the basis for calculating the municipal Property Taxes.
