How is Your Property Assessed?
Residential Properties
Residential properties are assessed as of July 1 of the previous year. The assessment should reflect what would have been a reasonable selling price at July 1 and then include any physical changes to your property (additions, renovations, demolitions, etc.) as at December 31 of that year.

Commercial Properties
Commercial properties are assessed in a slightly different manner. The Province has changed the process for these assessments, and they are now based on lease-rate studies and income studies of comparative properties.
