Information Disclosure for the 2016 Update

Learn about our three levels of disclosure for the 2016 Assessment Update.

Level 1: Methodology guides

Our methodology guides are comprehensive documents that explain how we carry out property assessments. See the guide for your property type

Level 2: Market valuation reports

Our market valuation reports (MVRs) explain how relevant methodology was applied to a specific group of properties, including key factors such as economic indicators and cost rates.

Property owners can access the MVRs associated with their property by logging into AboutMyProperty. A link to MVRs can be located on the reports page under the My Property tab. Look for your login information on your Property Assessment Notice.

Level 3: Property-specific valuation information

  • Log in to AboutMyProperty to see the detailed information we have on file for your property. You can also receive this information upon written request.
    • More detailed information about your property assessment is also available there, or upon written request.
  • In addition to the above information, we can provide all parties involved in an appeal with the following documents:
    • Property-Specific Adjustment Document.
    • Summary of reported rents.
    • Property profile(s) for any appeals filed for previous assessment cycles.

Disclosure guideline and schedule for property assessment appeals

If you submit an appeal to the Assessment Review Board (ARB), we will release information and documentation as laid out in our information disclosure schedule and the ARB guidelines. These have been developed by the ARB in consultation with MPAC, taxpayer representatives and municipalities.

The guideline and schedule were created to help stakeholders ensure that adequate information has been made available to avoid disputes regarding disclosure.

Information and Data Sharing Policy

Our Information and Data Sharing Policy applies to all industrial, commercial and multi-residential properties. 

The Policy is intended to provide clarity about the type of information and data that property owners, taxpayer representatives, municipalities and other parties need to understand the property assessment.

SPBPAR recommendations

Our information disclosure activities align with the recommendations made in the Ministry of Finance’s Special Purpose Business Property Assessment Review (SPBPAR) Report.
