Permissive Tax Exemptions

Division 7 of the Community Charter permits Council to exempt from taxation, property used for certain purposes. Organizations that are successful in receiving a Permissive Taxation Exemption will be exempt from taxes in the following and subsequent years.

Applications for Permissive Taxation Exemptions are first examined by the Grants Advisory Committee to determine whether they meet the requirements of the Community Charter. If the application meets the requirements, the Committee will then evaluate the application on the basis of financial need, appropriateness and service provided to the local community. Applicants may be required to appear before the Committee to answer questions with respect to program services, finances or other issues.

Deadline:Applications must be received by June 30th, to be considered for an exemption for the next taxation year.

See the application for more detailed instructions and to apply.
