Property Assessment

All properties within the boundaries of the Town of Melita are assessed by the Province of Manitoba Assessment Branch in Souris.

Properties are assessed after completion of building a new dwelling or structure in which a building permit was required.  The Province has also adopted a policy in which every property in Manitoba is reassessed every two years to keep assessments more current with the housing market.

Reassessment notices are mailed the year before new assessment values are to take effect.  2025 is a reassessment year and the notices have been sent by the Souris Assessment Branch in the summer of 2024.   The 2025 assessed values are based on the market value of your property as of April 1st, 2023.  The deadline for property owners to appeal their 2025 assessments is September 9th, 2024 by 4:30 pm.

We will be hosting an Open House for 2025 Property Reassessment on July 9th, 2024.

This is an opportunity to discuss questions such as:

  • Why is my property being reassessed?
  • Will an increase in my 2025 assessment mean an increase in my property taxes?
  • Why am I getting an assessment notice now?

Date: Tuesday, July 9th, 2024

Time: 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Location: Town of Melita Council Chambers (79 Main Street)
