Property Assessment and Taxation Workshop

Many stakeholders are not fully acquainted with ad valorem taxation principles and applications. While there is ample technical “know-how” training and education on property assessment and taxation, there is much less “know- why” knowledge comprehensively available at senior, local and administrative levels. The ad valorem taxation scheme developed centuries before other forms of taxation exists in most countries in the world but is subject to constant challenge.

The aim of this workshop is to explain the evolution of assessment and property taxation in Canada, with particular reference to the Nova Scotia context; identify the need for clear assessment and taxation policies; discuss issues associated with this form of taxation; stimulate discussion and offer possible solutions to the challenges faced by stakeholders today. It will briefly describe the history and evolution of Ad Valorem Taxation in Canada, with most of the time focused on property tax policy, principles, challenges and issues along with an overview of the fundamentals of property assessment in a mass appraisal context.

MANS has coordinated with the Board representatives and the Accessibility Directorate office to organize regional training workshops on Accessibility. The sessions will be two hours in length and have Gerry Post and Joshua Bates from the Directorate’s office in attendance. Workshop participants will learn helpful tips on how to comply with the act and, most importantly, meet the accessibility needs of your community. The workshop will offer a recommended approach to forming an Accessibility Advisory Committee and developing your accessibility plan. Many of the steps that will be shared were piloted in the Town of Wolfville, which developed Nova Scotia’s first comprehensive municipal accessibility plan. It is highly recommended that senior administrative leaders and accessibility coordinators come (others are also welcome to attend).

The dates and regions are listed below. Registration for this workshop will be opening soon. The cost to attend is free.
