The home owner grant is a provincial program that helps reduce the amount of residential property tax you pay.
To avoid a penalty, make sure:
Advance taxes: Tuesday, February 2
Main taxes: Tuesday, July 5
Home owner grant: Tuesday, July 5
We must have your payment or deferment and home owner grant by July 5 even if there is a Canada Post service disruption.
To make sure your payment arrives on time and without a 5% penalty, please consider paying your taxes through your bank, claiming your home owner grant online, or drop-off your payment or home owner grant at City Hall.
Canada Post postmarks are not proof of an on-time payment receipt.
Claim your home owner grant online and get an instant confirmation now. You can also mail, fax, or drop off your form in person. Get the details.

If you own a share in a co-op, you have to claim your home owner grant and pay your property tax. The grant form must be completed jointly by the co-op members.
