The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for assessing all properties in the Province of Ontario, including the City of Brampton. Assessment is the value assigned by MPAC to all property including land and buildings. The assessed value of property multiplied by the appropriate tax rate set each year by the City Council, determines the taxes each property owner pays. This rate includes the taxes levied by the school boards and the Region of Peel.
The assessment rolls list all property in Brampton, including owners' names, mailing addresses and the assessed value of each property. Assessment Roll information is available to the public through self-serve kiosks at City Hall during office hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
