Property value assessments in Ontario are conducted every four years by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). They conduct assessments for all types of property in Ontario ranging from residential properties to farms to commercial properties. For residential properties, they use a number of factors, including market price, to determine the assessed value of a property. While they release overviews of their valuation guidelines, there is no transparency in the assessment of a specific property.
Homeowners may find that the assessed value of their property differs significantly from its market price. There is also no way to retrieve and compare the assessed value of other properties.
