Property taxes are an annual payment covering January to December of the current year. Almost any owned property in the municipal boundaries is subject to taxes, the majority of which are homeowners and business or commercial property owners.

Your annual tax bill is calculated based on the assessed value of the property, which is done provincially by BC Assessments, and mailed to homeowners in January of that tax year. That assessed value is multiplied by the tax rate that is set by each agency. The Village of Daajing Giids sets the municipal tax rate and water and sewer frontage tax rates, which is the only portion of your property tax bill that is retained by the Village. The police, school, hospital taxes, library levy and North Coast Regional District taxes are forwarded by the municipality to each agency that provides vital community services.

Municipal property taxes are the most important source of revenue that help to provide the services the municipality is legislated to offer such as water & sewer services, road maintenance, emergency response and other facilities and services the Village runs, including the Youth Centre, cemetery, municipal campground, parks & recreation facilities.

Every year, Council & staff create operating and capital project budgets to ensure the services provided by the municipality are accounted for.

Tax Deadlines

For 2023, the deadline to pay taxes is Tuesday, July 4th, 2023.

A 10% late penalty is applied to unpaid current year taxes on July 5th 2023.

An unclaimed home owner grant is considered outstanding taxes and the above penalties apply.

Failure to pay property taxes by December 31st will put a property tax account into arrears and that unpaid amount will start to accrue daily interest. After another full year, unpaid arrears will become delinquent. Delinquent properties (properties with taxes unpaid for 2+ years) will be put to tax sale by the municipality if not paid by the September deadline.


Homeowner Grants are a provincial program that incentivizes homeowners by offsetting a portion of the property taxes on the home you live in. On Haida Gwaii, the maximum value of a provincial homeowner grant is $770 for the general population, and $1045 for seniors over 65 and other qualified participants, but it can vary depending on the assessed value of your property.

​​​​​​​As of 2021, Homeowner grants are administered by the province. You can no longer apply for your grant on the back of your property tax notice. You must apply online with the Province.

Visit: If you are unable to apply online, call 1-888-355-2700 for assistance.

An unclaimed Home Owner Grant is considered outstanding taxes. In order to avoid penalties you must apply for your homeowner grant with the Province by the tax due date. This must be submitted every year.
