Property tax and assessment tools
Purchase a Property Tax Certificate
Tax certificates are available to purchase through Access Point Information Canada (APIC). Visit the APIC website to log on, set up an account and purchase a tax certificate for any tax folio.
Our free, online property tax and assessment search can be a useful tool for generic property tax information.
Register and access your property tax account through your Property Account by using your access code and folio number from your property tax notice. Review a sample property tax bill for the location of the access code and folio number.
Enroll in Pre-Authorized Withdrawals (PAWs) and prepay next year's taxes
If all outstanding property taxes have been paid in full, you can enrol in our PAWs plan to prepay next year's taxes. You will need your property tax folio number to apply.
