City council approved the 2020 tax exemption bylaw at their meeting Oct. 8.

The bylaw lists organizations within the city that will not have to pay property taxes in 2020.

The criteria for the exemptions is outlined in the Local Government Act.

The assistance must be for community benefit and cannot provide assistance to an industrial, commercial or business undertaking, however an exemption to the rule is if a business is acquiring, conserving or developing a heritage property, or increasing public awareness about history.
