Property Assessments


The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for assessing the value of all properties in Ontario. If you have questions about your property assessment, please contact the local MPAC office at 1477 Lansdowne Street West in Peterborough, call them toll free at 1-866-296-6722.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario government postponed the 2020 Assessment Update.

Do you disagree with your assessment?

If you disagree with the assessment of your property, you can ask MPAC to review your assessment through the request for reconsideration process.

If you disagree with the outcome of the reconsideration process, you can file an appeal with the Assessment Review Board, an independent tribunal established under the Assessment Act.
