Important Update on the Condominium Property Tax Fairness Campaign

We are now on the eve of the provincial election which will happen on April 19, 2016.  This campaign will be crucial to ensuring that we achieve property tax fairness for condominium owners across Manitoba.

Provincial cabinet decides what property tax rate portion applies to condominiums.  We believe that the portion is too high and is unjust.  We have been approaching the government and all parties in order to achieve the changes we believe are necessary for property tax fairness.

The current provincial government has done nothing to address the underlying unfairness of how property taxes are charged to condominium owners.  The opposition parties have shown more support for changes during our recent meetings with them. 

The Progressive Conservative party specifically mentioned condos in their Alternative Speech from the Throne in December 2015 and have expressed support for positive changes to the condominium property tax system and with respect to the new Condominium Act. 

The Manitoba Liberals have consistently expressed support for reducing the property tax portion paid by condo owners.

The NDP has not offered any property tax reductions for condominiums. Before election day, we will update you again on this important issue and the parties’ commitments.

As candidates come to your building seeking your vote, be sure to tell them that the property tax system is unfair to condominium owners.  We also encourage you to contact your local candidates.
