Wondering why the change in your taxes differs from the City’s approved property tax increase?

If the increase in your property value is higher than the average increase in your property class (for example, residential), your taxes payable may increase more than the Council approved average property tax increase.

Similarly, if the increase in your assessed property value is lower than the average increase in your property class, your taxes payable may increase less than the approved average property tax increase.

From 2021 to 2022, the average residential property value assessment in the City of North Vancouver increased by 15%.

Where the Money Comes From

The City funds a wide variety of services from these revenue sources:

  • 81% taxation
  • 9% licences, permits, fees
  • 7% interest, tax penalties, other
  • 3% grants in lieu of taxes

Property taxes contribute to many of the critical community services that make the City a great place to live, like roads, parks, protective services, and more. Here are some major projects the City is investing in:
