  • Assessments reflect market value as of July 1, 2022.
  • Assessments increased throughout Greater Vancouver for detached and strata homes. 

Property owners receive their 2022 assessment notices, which reflect the market value as of July 1, 2022, the first week of January.

Assessments increased throughout Greater Vancouver for detached and strata homes.

For detached homes, Pemberton saw the highest increase at 16 per cent, followed by Pitt Meadows and Sechelt, each with a 15 per cent increase, and Delta, New Westminster and Whistler, each with an 11 per cent increase.

For strata homes, Whistler saw the largest increase at 17 per cent, followed by Squamish with a 16 per cent increase.

For new construction or substantially renovated homes, the estimate is based on the physical condition as of October 31, 2022.

Viewing the assessment notice

Property owners can also see a property’s assessment using the address on BC Assessment’s (BCA) website.

Details include a photo, a property description (land and buildings), the total assessed value, the previous year’s value, the legal description, and property ID.

If property details are incorrect, property owners are directed to complete and submit an Data Validation Form.

Property owners can also compare neighbouring properties and sample sold properties to determine whether their property has been correctly assessed. 

Deadline to appeal assessment is January 31, 2023

roperty owners who disagree with their assessment should do homework by:

  • comparing their assessment with neighbouring properties; and
  • contacting BCA at 1-866-825-8322. Staff can make adjustments if there’s an obvious error, for example if BCA included a complete renovation when there was only a spruce-up or an upgrade for plumbing or electrical.

Property owners who decide to appeal their property assessment should review information on the Property Assessment Appeal Board website on how to prepare for an appeal.  

Each year less than one per cent of BC property owners appeal their assessments.

Note: you can’t appeal your taxes. You can only appeal your assessment.

Property tax

Property taxation is determined by local and provincial taxing authorities after determining their budget needs and calculating property tax rates based on the assessment roll for their jurisdiction.

Municipalities determine tax rates for each property class in the spring, once the assessment roll is finalized. Changes in assessment over the year don’t automatically translate into the same percentage changes in property taxes for any particular class of property or for any individual property.
