For instance, road building and repair, maintaining recreation facilities and areas, and providing policing and fire services, just to name a few. The rate is set in the spring of the tax year.

School Fees

The school portion of the combined tax rate is set by Alberta Education.

Grande Spirit Foundation

Requisition amounts to the Grande Spirit Foundation are set by the Province of Alberta. 

Assessment and Taxes

Assessment is the process of valuing property for the purpose of fairly and equitably distributing a municipality's total property tax among property owners. It establishes the value of a property in relation to similar properties.

Property taxes are generated when the provincial school and municipal tax rates are multiplied by the assessed value of your property. The municipal tax rate is also known as the municipal tax mill rate.

Combined Assessment and Tax Notice

The Municipal Government Act requires that all property in Alberta be assessed each year to ensure that changes in market value are captured regularly to protect taxpayers from large market-driven assessment changes.

A tax notice will be sent out to the property owner every year with an amount based on your taxable assessment and the applied mill rate set by council. this will include both the County portion and the requisition portion for schools and other purposes.

Assessment Notices

Property Assessment Notices are mailed to County of Grande Prairie No. 1 property owners by the end of May of each year. If you have not received your property notice by mid-June please contact Assessment Services at 780-513-3952.
