Authority to Collect Information

MPAC’s request for property information is collected under section 11 of the Assessment Act and used for property assessment purposes. Section 13 of the Act provides penalties for non-compliance and for providing false information. Furthermore, if the information requested is not provided and you choose to appeal your assessed value to the Assessment Review Board, the Act provides that the burden of proof will shift from MPAC to the appellant.

MPAC is committed to protecting your information. We are prevented from the unauthorized disclosure of your information under the provisions of section 53 of the Assessment Act and section 10 of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

For more information on your obligation under this legislation, we have linked to relevant sections of the Assessment Act on the Government of Ontario’s website below.
