Property valuations, budget, and tax information
Property valuations 2011, 2012, 2013
The year 2011 is the first year of a new three-year property evaluation roll, where new assessments established by the Agglomeration of Montreal have resulted in an average evaluaton increase of 11.2 percent. The new value of your property will be used on your 2011, 2012, and 2013 tax bills. The new value of your property reflects its market value as of July 1, 2009 based on comparative sales in your neighbourhood.
Note: This online service is provided by the Agglomeration of Montreal and we regret that it is only available in French. You may visit or call Côte Saint-Luc City Hall weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to request your information.
In 2013, the property tax increase of an average residential property, which is valued at $471,800, will rise 1.34 percent, or $79. Residential properties include single-family homes, condominiums, and duplexes.
The local operating budget for 2013 is $65.2 million and pays for basic and first-class services that make Côte Saint-Luc unique, including snow clearing, aqueduct and sewer maintenance and repair, the library, recreation facilities, waste collection, the public safety services including vCOP and the EMS first responder service, the arena, the gym and the new Aquatic and Community Centre (ACC). Côte Saint-Luc must also pay an allotment of $27.7 million to the Agglomeration of Montreal. This allotment goes to pay for our share of island-wide services such as fire, police, public transport, regional parks, evaluation, waste and water treatment and the salaries and pensions of agglomeration employees.
The local capital budget for 2013 is $5.98 million and focuses on water infrastructure projects subsidized by the Quebec government gas tax funding program (TECQ) grant, road and sidewalk reconstruction and repaving, building improvements, underpass inspection and repairs, the construction of Imagination Park on the ACC site, and Public Works Department vehicles.
Given the increased level of service coming from the ACC and given the inflationary increases in labour and operational costs, the Côte Saint-Luc council and management are pleased that we have once again delivered a balanced budget that has limited increases in taxes and continued to ensure high quality services for our residents.
Tax Bill 2013

It also pays for island-wide services such as public transit, and the police and fire departments.

School Tax info
The Comité de gestion de la taxe scolaire de l’île de Montréal collects taxes from property owners, including in Côte Saint-Luc. If you own property, you will receive a school tax bill from them. Please note that Côte Saint-Luc is not in any way involved in this. You cannot pay your school tax bill at our office. We merely present the school tax information here as a public service.
