Tax Recovery

The Tax Recovery Process is regulated by the provincial government.

To have a property reach the Tax Recovery list, taxes are in arrears for more than one year. One year following the registration date of March 31st, the parcel will be sold at Public Auction (ie. Caveat registered on March 31, 2018, parcel sold at Public Auction after March 31, 2019, if it remains in arrears). At any time prior to the sale date, all levies can be paid in full and the parcel will be removed from Public Auction.
