Wish to confirm details?

An Assessor can verbally provide the information used in valuation for your property or print a “Summary Report” of characteristics at no charge.  If there is an error in the property file, an assessor may correct it without you having to appeal formally. This consultation is an effective method to ensure that your property's attributes are reflective of what is recorded in the 2018 assessment roll.

Should you wish to confirm details about your property please contact Assessment at 780-459-1603.

Non-residential property owners may request calculation sheets. Note that agents for property owners will be required to have an updated letter of authorization. 

Additionally, Assessors will be re-inspecting various neighbourhoods updating property details on file. For new home construction and larger changes to existing properties, an internal inspection may be required. For condominium properties, requests for information (RFIs) are mailed to property owners.

An assessed person may also ask the municipality to prepare sufficient information with respect to Section 299 (access to the Assessment Record) or Section 300 (access to Summary of Assessment) of the Municipal Government Act. An administrative cost may be associated with this type of detailed request.
