Pre-Authorized Payment (PAP)

You now have the option of selecting one of the two different pre-authorized payment plans that offer you the convenience of having no cheques to write, no worries about overdue payments, no large lump sum payments, and no line-ups at your bank or municipal office.  Pre-Authorized Payment Agreement Form

Note: All arrears must be paid in full prior to implementation. Supplementary and Tax Adjustment Billings will be your responsibility, as they are not covered under these programs.

Your two pre-authorized payment options include:

  • Instalment (Due Date)

  • Monthly (15th of each month)


If you are selling or have sold your property, your pre-authorized payment is NOT automatically discontinued.  If you would like to cancel your pre-authorized payment plan or make changes to your banking information, please complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Cancellation or Account Update Form
