Some property owners may be eligible for the BC Property Tax Deferment Program. 

Eligible property owners:

Anyone who hasn’t paid their property taxes, claimed their home owner grant (if eligible) or successfully applied to the BC Property Tax Deferment Program by Sept. 30, will be subject to a 10 per cent penalty after that date.

City Hall is open for tax and utility payments only, however, cash will not be accepted until after Sept. 30, due to COVID-19. Payments can be made in person with cheque, debit or credit only.

City Hall is open Monday to Friday, 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed Canada Day (Wednesday, July 1).

Other payment options include:

  • Online or in person through your financial institution
  • Online by credit card through the city’s website
  • Mailing a cheque (however, do not send cash in the mail. Postmarks will not be accepted as date of payment)
  • By cheque in the City Hall drop box

The city says that paying on or before the July 2 deadline allows the city to “keep vital services in place to support community needs” during COVID-19.

Meanwhile, flat rate utility bills are due today (Tuesday, June 30).
