Parking tariff – Shops and industries

In 2017, parking charges are billed according to the taxable area used for parking.

Taxable parking area:
The taxable parking area of a taxable property forming part of an evaluation unit zoned industrial is obtained by multiplying the gross parking area by 70%.
 
The taxable parking area of a taxable property forming part of an evaluation unit zoned non-residential but not industrial is equal to its gross area.

Bulky waste charging

Since 2015, the City is offering a bulky waste collection service to residents of exempted buildings. The annual collection calendar includes nine (9) collections of bulky waste, whether reusable or landfill-bound. The tax by-law adopted in 2017 reflects this change by specifying a fee of fifteen dollars ($29) for the service.
 
The fundamental goal of the new collections is to offer all residents a standard pickup service for cumbersome household items that they wish to discard. See instructions regarding which materials are acceptable as well as the collection dates.

What Is Bulky Waste?
Bulky waste is waste of domestic origin whose volume, weight, dimensions or non-compressible nature prevents it from being placed in wheeled bins or approved containers for pickup during regular garbage collection. The waste must not be too large or too heavy to be picked up by two people without using mechanical equipment, and it should be no more than two (2) metres long.
 
Bulky waste therefore covers cumbersome objects found in the home that you wish to dispose of because they are defective, old, etc. Specifically, it includes—but is not limited to—household appliances, furniture and mattresses. It does not include appliances that contain halocarbons.

Sectoral Taxation

Sector taxes are used to repay loans taken out by the municipality to fund infrastructure works such as sewage, waterworks, paving, lighting, etc. The amount billed to the tax account depends on the area and/or frontage of the property. These loans are spread over a period of about 20 to 25 years. Taxpayers who benefit from these infrastructure works contribute to the repayment of the loans.
