Registered Charities

Registered charities which occupy property in the commercial or industrial class may be eligible for property tax rebates of 40 per cent. All those who wish to apply must have a valid registration number issued by The Canada Revenue Agency and submit an application by the last day of February following the tax year.

 The application form can be downloaded as an online fillable PDF document. It is also available at the Customer Service.  

 The tax rebate offered to charities is intended to offset property tax increases that resulted from the elimination of the Business Occupancy Tax.  Qualifying charities must apply each year for the rebate.

Vacant Commercial and Industrial Buildings

To be eligible for a rebate, a building or a portion of a building must satisfy certain conditions:

  • being unused for 90 consecutive days
  • must have been available for lease
  • must not be subject to any lease agreements

Seasonal property, space used to store the owner's personal items, leased property and vacant land sub class property is not eligible for a rebate.

This new rebate program is governed by Section 364 of The Municipal Act and Ontario Regulation 325/01. When submitting an application please ensure a building floor plan is included, as well as any applicable lease documents. The application form can be downloaded as an online fillable PDF document. It is also available at the Customer Service, 10 Lisgar Ave.  

Your rebate application must be submitted to the Customer Service /Revenue Manager by the last day of February of the year following the taxation year to which the application relates. Applications received after the last day of February will not be considered for rebate.
