Fall 2023 Conference Roundup
Our MPAC team was pleased to connect with municipalities and other stakeholders at several conferences over the past few months!
At the Ontario East Municipal Conference (OEMC) in Ottawa, we shared how we keep Ontario’s property database current and the tools available to empower municipal staff and property owners to learn about our assessments.
While at the Ontario Municipal Tax and Revenue Association (OMTRA) conference in Niagara Falls, members of our team shared our ongoing efforts to support municipal partners, and participated in two information sessions where we offered an update on appeals and an overview of our severance and consolidation process.
At the Municipal Finance Officers Association (MFOA) conference in Niagara Falls, we were pleased to share more about our role in the property tax and assessment system and what we’re doing to support the evolving needs of municipalities. Mary Dawson-Cole, Director, Municipal and Stakeholder Relations, joined Carm Lipsi, Vice-President and COO, in an informative session where they discussed our commitment to develop innovative ways to better serve communities across Ontario, and shared our current areas of focus and recent operational highlights.
Our team enjoyed attending this year’s International Plowing Match & Rural Expo in Bowling Green, where we had the opportunity to speak with farm and rural property owners, answer questions and share information about how we assess farms and the farm tax incentive programs.
At the Association française des municipalités de l'Ontario (AFMO) conference in Kapuskasing, MPAC Board Chair Alan Spacek and Mario Levesque, Account Manager, Municipal and Stakeholder Relations, met with francophone municipal staff and leaders to share what we’re focused on in support of our municipal partners and property owners.
We enjoyed meeting attendees at the Ontario Building Officials Association (OBOA) Annual Meeting and Trade Show in Niagara Falls where we connected on all things property assessment with building industry professionals from across Ontario.
Our last conference of this year was at the Ontario Municipal Administrators Association (OMAA) Fall Workshop in Blue Mountain. Our team met with municipal administrators to share our latest information and answer their questions.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone again when we kick off the 2024 conference circuit at the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) conference in Toronto in January!
