Your assessment

The Municipal Assessment Act provides the years that all properties in the City of Winnipeg are reassessed utilizing an updated reference date. An assessment is the City's estimate of the value of your property as of a specific date.

The Province's Municipal Assessment Act requires the City to assess all property in Winnipeg so it can fairly and equitably divide the property tax it must raise. The Assessment and Taxation Department's objective is to ensure equity by valuing all similar properties in the same way so each property owner pays a fair share of the property tax.

Property is assessed at its market value, or the price the property (land and buildings) could normally sell for on the real estate market as of the reference date. The provincially mandated reference date for the 2025 General Assessment is April 1, 2023. In other words, the 2025 (and 2026) market value represents the expected selling price of that property on April 1, 2023.

In a year of reassessment, all property owners will receive an Assessment Notice. In the intervening years, Assessment Notices may only be sent out for properties that have undergone a change (ownership, improvement, addition, etc.) and have been reassessed accordingly.

If you think your assessment is incorrect, or if you have any questions, please contact 311 to communicate with the Assessment and Taxation Department.
