Assessment notices are sent out in April to all ratepayers whose assessment has changed since the previous year.
Ratepayers may appeal their assessment if they believe there has been an error in the assessed value, the classification of the property, the contents of the assessment roll,
or the assessment notice. Appeals must be made within 30 days (60 days in a revaluation year) of the mailing of
the assessment notice. More information on appealing an assessment can be found on Saskatchewan.ca,
or by contacting the municipal office.
Property assessment is performed by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA). Visit their website for information on how property is assessed, how to view your assessment online, and more.
