Important Update on the Condominium Property Tax Fairness Campaign

It has been a busy few months for the property tax campaign.  During the provincial election, we successfully raised the issue of property tax fairness.  CCI-Manitoba distributed 50,000 flyers targeting condominium owners.  While we reached out to all CCI members, we also targeted non CCI member condo owners.  Our outreach was successful and our events about property tax fairness in Brandon and in Winnipeg were very well attended. Thank you to all who attended!

At the sessions, we shared information about the current property tax system and how it is unfair to condominium owners.  We explained how the province controls the property tax system across Manitoba and for all types of properties.  We showed how condominium owners pay too much under the current system.

We encouraged condominium owners to speak to their provincial candidates about the issue and condo owners did!  We know because we heard from political candidates wanting more information on the issue.  We also had the chance to correct the perception that property taxes are just a municipal issue.  In fact, the system is set up and controlled by the province.

Now that the election is over, we will be pressing the provincial government more than ever to deliver on property tax fairness for condominium owners.  You can help by contacting your MLA and telling them that this issue matters to you.  Let them know that we expect action.

That is how we will achieve property tax fairness in Manitoba.  Thank you for your continued action and support.
