Large and Special Purpose Properties
As part of MPAC’s commitment to better service through transparency, predictability and accuracy, we held consultation sessions with municipalities, property owners and representatives to discuss how assessment methodology was being applied to large and special purpose business properties for the 2016 Assessment Update.
The following guides were created to reflect industry standards, best practices and feedback from consultation sessions.
In accordance with the direction issued by the Minister of Finance on April 18, 2015 (subsection 10(1) of the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation Act, 1997), MPAC published a Methodology Guide for each of the following sectors:
