An Important Notice Regarding Your
Property Assessment from MPAC
Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) Website: www.mpac.ca
MPAC About My Property Website: www.aboutmyproperty.ca
All residential property owners in Whitchurch-Stouffville will have recently received a Property Assessment Notice from MPAC. This is a very important document as it will form the basis upon which the town will assess your property taxes for the next four years. (2016 – 2020)
MPAC previously completed their property assessment effective January1, 2012. The current assessed value is effective January 1, 2016. The statistics upon which the current valuations are based indicate the average single residential valuation has increased 45.9% in York Region during that time period.
The year-over-year change, January 1, 2017 over January 1, 2016 is anticipated to be 12.2%.
Please review your notice carefully as it contains a summary of the data MPAC have for your property and upon which they base their calculation. It also indicates the school system you support.
If you have any questions you can go to the MPAC website, or you can call their office at 1-866-296-6722. If you deem it necessary you will have 120 days in which to file a “Request for Reconsideration” notice. (Until October 11, 2016).
An additional source of much information on market trends etc is available on the website titled
About My Property.

With this change in the town’s portion of your property taxes, as well as that charged by York Region and the School Board, which are all included in your realty tax bill, residents will see their property tax bill increased by approximately 2.1% this year.
I am very pleased to advise that I had support from other councillors to include three special capital projects in our Ward 2 area.
• $2. million allocated toward the work on the new Coultice Park
• A new sports Fieldhouse for Ballantrae Park on Aurora Road
• Installation of sidewalks on both Highway 48 (Pine Vista to Ballantrae Road) and Aurora Road (Grayfield to Hwy 48)
These projects are all scheduled to be well underway during 2016.
