Property Assessment

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has the role of accurately valuing and classifying properties in Ontario in accordance with the Assessment Act and the regulations established by the Ontario Government. MPAC provides a range of services including the preparation of the annual assessment rolls for use by municipalities and the Province of Ontario to calculate property taxes and education taxes. When your municipality/local taxing authority sets property tax rates, your assessed value and classification are used to determine your property taxes. An assessment increase does not necessarily mean your taxes will increase.

For questions about your property taxes, please contact the Township of Mapleton at 519-638-3313
