You can set up pre-authorized payments by:

Monthly payments are automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the 5th of the month from September to May.

Post-dated cheques

Drop off your post-dated cheques to the City Hall Finance counter located at 100 Newport Drive. By paying with post-dated cheques, you have the ability to:

  • select the date for each payment
  • determine the amount for each payment

You can vary the dates and amounts each month to better fit your personal budget.

Telephone or internet banking

Contact your bank or financial institution to schedule automated bill payments to your tax account. To set up telephone or internet banking, you will need to set your folio number (without the dash) as your account number. Your folio number is located on your tax bill.

If you are on the pre-payment plan and sell your property, it is your responsibility to contact us and cancel the pre-authorized payment plan. If you would like to make changes to your existing plan, please fill out and submit the Pre-payment plan change form

Home owner grant

The Government of British Columbia gives a home owner grant to eligible homeowners. For more information on eligibility and how to apply for the grant, visit the Government of British Columbia.

Claim your home owner grant

Home owner grants are available online from May 15 to December 31 for the current year.

When you buy a property, you become liable for all outstanding taxes. You can't claim the home owner grant on the property in the year you buy it if:

  • the seller paid the taxes in full and did not claim the grant; or
  • if you already claimed a grant on another property.

Property tax deferment program

Tax deferment is a low interest loan program that helps B.C. homeowners pay their property taxes. View the Government of British Columbia for more information about eligibility and how to apply for the loan.
