As in 2021, residential taxes will be reduced by 2.5 percent in 2022. It is the fifth time in six years that Dorval has lowered property taxes.

Dorval Mayor Marc Doret, who was elected to succeed Edgar Rouleau last month, says the tax cut comes at a good time for local residents to deal with the pandemic and inflation.

“It is my pleasure to announce that, despite a 5.3 percent increase in the Quebec Consumer Price Index in October, despite an increase from the Agglomeration payment, and despite COVID-19, we are reducing the average residential tax bill by 2.5 percent, which is, on average, $ 73.38 less on the tax bill, ”Doret said in the city’s budget statement.

“It comes from smart financial management and making sure we have a little money set aside. And the most important thing for us is that we are reaching a point where our debt incurred 20 years ago practically no longer exists. Here’s how we can translate this into a tax cut for our residents. “
