Each year, BC Assessment (a provincial Crown corporation) produces independent and uniform property assessments on an annual basis for all property owners in the province. BC Assessment provides information about properties within the City of Campbell River to the City as the basis for calculating annual property taxes.

Tax Rates

By May 15 of each year, Council approves the annual tax rates bylaw on which property taxes are based.  The rates are expressed as an amount per thousand dollars of assessed property value. For example, if the rate is 7.5000, property taxes would be $7.50 for each $1,000 of assessed value, and a home valued at $100,000 would pay $750 in property taxes for that year.

Annual Tax Notice

Tax notices are usually mailed out the third week of May each year, shortly after Council approves the tax rates bylaw. The tax notice shows the amount of property taxes due, and may include parcel taxes and user fees applicable to your property. The City also serves as the collector for other taxing bodies, such as

  • Provincial School Taxes 
  • Strathcona Regional District
  • Comox-Strathcona Regional Hospital District
  • BC Assessment
  • Municipal Finance Authority

If you do not receive your tax notice by the beginning of June, please contact our Tax Clerk at 250-286-5715 or email


After July 4, 2023, a 10% penalty will be imposed on all outstanding current tax balances. Penalties are also applied to any balance owing due to an unclaimed Home Owner Grant.

Tax Sale

Each September the City is required under the Local Government Act to hold an annual tax sale for those properties with delinquent taxes (unpaid taxes for 3 years). For more information, please read the Annual Tax Sale General Information.


Please read Property Tax Facts for information on the various ways you can pay your taxes.
