I would like to express my gratitude for the chance to serve the people of Ontario through my role as Board Chair of the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). After serving three terms, my role comes to an end on August 31, 2019.

I am extremely proud of the transformational change MPAC has achieved over the last decade. 

While assessing more properties than ever, we’ve increased accreditation among valuation staff, implemented a formalized commitment to our municipal partners, and become more transparent by sharing market analysis and insights into our decision-making processes. 

We’ve come a long way, and I’m confident that our transformation will only continue under the leadership of MPAC’s new Board Chair, Alan Spacek. Alan joined the Board in May of this year and brings a breadth of experience in the municipal sector. He was elected Mayor of Kapuskasing in 2006 and was acclaimed for two more terms, retiring in December 2018. 

“It is a privilege for me to assume the role of MPAC Board Chair. From my years in municipal government I know firsthand the value of the services and expertise MPAC provides to the taxpayers and municipalities of Ontario. This is an exciting time to be at MPAC as we prepare for the next province-wide Assessment Update in 2020.”

I know that Alan is well-positioned to lead MPAC through the 2020 Assessment Update and I will be on hand to support this transition. I wish him the very best in his new appointment.

Finally, I would like to thank the staff at MPAC. It has been my honour to work alongside such a dedicated team of experts who truly make MPAC a customer-focused organization that brings value to the people of Ontario.
