Property tax deferral and other relief

Apr 08, 2020 | Jeremy Goldfarb


There are a number of programs being rolled out by different branches of government as the COVID-19 crisis continues on. Hopefully, we start to come out on the other end of this very soon. In the meantime, it is important to stay educated on what is available for both individuals and businesses alike. I have posted before on the Canadian governments enhanced benefit measures, a link that can be found by clicking here. These have also been changed.


I wanted to add a new link that I familiarized myself with today. The city of Ottawa is offering property tax deferrals for both individuals and businesses (where applicable -- landlords, I'm speaking to you) who meet a certain set of criteria. I invite you to review the program by clicking here. Take advantage of it if you think you

a) need to now

b) will need it in the future

c) may be faced with circumstances whereby a deferral could come in handy


I will continue to monitor these changes and bring them to you as I understand them.
