THIS NOTICE is given pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (the “FMA”).

Wasauksing First Nation (“Wasauksing”) proposes to enact the Wasauksing First Nation Property Assessment Law, 2020 and the Wasauksing First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2020 (together, the “Proposed Laws”) and repeal the Wasauksing First Nation Property Assessment Law, 2018 and the Wasauksing First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2018 in their entirety.

DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS: The Proposed Laws are a property assessment law made under the authority of section 5(1)(a)(i) of the FMA and a property taxation law made under the general authority of section 5(1)(a) of the FMA. The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in Wasauksing’s reserve lands, and includes provisions for appointing assessors, inspecting property, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices. This law includes a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an assessment review board.

The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, optional tax installment payments, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes.

Copies of the Proposed Laws may be obtained from Wasauksing at the address set out below.

If you wish to make a written representation, your written representation must be received by Wasauksing at the address set out below on or before 4:00 p.m. on April 10, 2020. Council will consider all written representations received in accordance with this Notice before enacting the Proposed Laws.
