due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Township has decided to defer the first instalment of the 2020 Interim Tax Bill by 30 days with a revised due date of THURSDAY APRIL 30th, 2020. This is not a tax abatement. It is a temporary tax relief for property owners affected by COVID-19, if you are able to pay on or before the deadline, we ​encourage that you do so.

For property owners who have submitted post-dated cheques or have registered for the Pre-authorized Payment plans (PAP) deposits/withdrawals will continue on the original due dates unless directed otherwise. Please contact us ASAP for any concerns.

Property owners are encouraged to use one of our various payment options listed below:

• Telephone / internet banking - Owner to set-up as Payee through their banking institution, using their full 19-digit roll number as the account number (no spaces or dashes)
• Drop box located at the Township office front entrance (Cheques/bank drafts/money orders only). Please do not deposit cash in Drop Box.
• Mailing a cheque payment (post-dated cheques are acceptable) allowing sufficient mailing time to reach our office on/before the due date

*Dropbox/Mail - Please provide a copy of your tax bill along with your cheque(s). We will stamp and send a receipt back to you.

Payments must be received by the due date. Penalty charges are levied at a rate of 1.25% on the first day of default and on the first day of each month thereafter. Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a taxpayer from responsibility for payment nor relieve the taxpayer from incurring penalties and interest.

As the township has declared an emergency. All parks and playgrounds are completely close to public due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Public shall not use any parks or playgrounds until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

​Notice to Residents
