CORNWALL, Ontario – The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) began mailing Property Assessment Notices today in Cornwall, where assessed values of residential property values have increased an average of 1.8 per cent per year since 2012.


Every four years MPAC conducts a province-wide Assessment Update and mails Property Assessment Notices to every property owner in Ontario. In 2016, MPAC will update the assessed values of every property in Ontario. All properties will have a legislated valuation date of January 1, 2016.

MPAC looks at sales and compares properties to similar properties that have sold in a particular area.  “Our assessments reflect the local real estate market and most property owners in the City of Cornwall have seen the value of their home increase over the last four years,” said Andrew Loney, Director of Valuation and Customer Relations in MPAC’s Cornwall office. In Cornwall, the typical residential property is assessed at $169,000.


“Property owners should ask themselves if they could have sold their property for its assessed value on January 1, 2016.  If the answer is yes, then their assessment is accurate and no further action is required. If not, we are committed to working with them to get it right,” said Loney.


Property owners can visit to learn more about residential market trends in their area and how their property was assessed. By using the Roll Number and unique Access Key on their Property Assessment Notice, they can also see the information MPAC has on file for their property and compare it to others in their area.

  1. Our MPAC assessment is bang on. Going from $186k to $198k in four years. And the insurance / real estate evaluation is higher so that’s good for us.

  2. Hugger you said that is good for you? I don’t think that you or anyone else have figured this out and that is for higher taxes for the town of Cornwall to collect and make you poorer. Another thing is someone has to support all the migrants/refugees coming in so yes they need your tax money. Your money is going to get less and less. There will be no middle class and aready falling apart.

  3. Jules…that may be so. But I’d rather own a house and pay taxes than pay rent and pay off someone else’s mortgage. And your taxes are going towards paying for refugees, etc.; not just homeowners.
