Pay at City Hall drop box

After hours, you can pay by cheque using the drop box located in the main entrance inside the front door of City Hall. The mail slot is accessible during regular hours, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

Late payments


Penalties are calculated according to our Penalty Bylaw. If you do not pay your current taxes in full by June 30, we will add 0.75% every month on whatever balance is outstanding.

If your taxes are still unpaid after December 31, your property is in arrears and the penalty increases to 1.25% per month, and we will begin Tax Enforcement proceedings.

 Tax Enforcement

The Citizens Guide to Municipal Tax Enforcement outlines the process municipalities must follow to collect property taxes that are in arrears.

To aid in the collection of property taxes, we have adopted a Tax Enforcement Policy to outline the process, along with associated fees.

The applicable fees are applied directly to the tax account.
