Late Payment Charges

A late payment charge of 1.25% will be added on the unpaid amount of an instalment on the first day after the instalment due date and on the first day of each calendar month until paid.

Penalty and interest rates are set by City by-law pursuant to the Municipal Act and cannot be waived or altered. Payments not cleared by your financial institution will result in a service charge being added to your account in accordance with the City's Fees and Charges By-law.
