Tax Rebate for Charities

An eligible charity will be entitled to a rebate as calculated by the City's Finance Department equal to a maximum of 40% of the apportioned amount of taxes paid through the organization’s lease payments.

If the eligible charity is required to pay an amount as outlined in sections 367 and 368 of the Municipal Act, 2001 dealing with the flow-through of taxes in the case of gross leases, the rebate will be the amount that the charity is required to pay under those sections.

This rebate program was initiated by the Province of Ontario in 2001 requiring municipalities to provide rebates to eligible charities occupying leased commercial or industrial property.

On August 27, 2001, Council passed By-law 2001-159 establishing a tax rebate program for eligible charities. The following summarizes the by-law and should be read in conjunction with the application for tax relief.
