Residential Property Tax Assistance Program for webOur Residential Property Tax Assistance (RPTA) program provides property tax assistance to those who may be struggling to pay their property tax in the form of a credit, applied directly to the tax accounty, for qualified applicants.

Each year, as part of the RPTA program, Council sets the exemption rate in accordance with section 69 of the Municipal Government Act. This exemption applies to taxpayers in the Municipality whose household taxable income does not exceed the $25,000 limit set by Council, as outlined in our Residential Property Tax Assistance Policy

Proof of income (CRA Notice of Assessment) must accompany the application for all members residing in your household. Taxable income is less than total income and many deductions, such as child care, RRSP, and union dues are deducted to calculate taxable income. You may qualify and not know it!

Masks Madatory July 31

Premier Stephen McNeil and Dr. Robert Strang, chief medical officer of health for Nova Scotia, announced today, July 24, that masks will become mandatory in most indoor public places starting July 31.

“As we open our economy, our schools and our communities, we must continue to be vigilant to minimize the impact of a second wave of COVID-19,” said Premier McNeil. “Wearing a non-medical mask in most indoor public places is a key part of how we protect each other and support our local businesses so they can stay open for the long run.”

Children under two are exempt, as well as children aged two to four when their caregiver cannot get them to wear a mask. People with a valid medical reason for not wearing a mask are exempt. Schools, daycares and day camps continue to follow their reopening plans.
