It seems like no one is catching a break when it comes to the cost of owning a home these days and in St. Catharines the cost of your property tax is no exception…


St.Catharines city councillors passed this year’s operating budget after hours of debate and that included a spending increase of 3 percent…

So what does that look like for property owners?  The overall tax hike for property owners in the city, is expected to be 2.83 percent when the school board and the regional rate are factored in.


To give a clearer sense of what that means, if you have a home worth about  $230,000 you will pay aproximately $93.00 more this year.
