The increase of $7.3 million to Dollard-des-Ormeaux by the Montreal Agglomeration is the highest rise of the shared quota portion paid to the Agglomeration of all the demerged cities, dollar for dollar. It is by far the highest we have ever received since the demerger in 2006. Broken down, this new tax bill represents an average increase of $400 per household from last year. 

The impact of the new shared quota brings a clearer picture for Dollard-des-Ormeaux residents, as more than 50% of their municipal tax bill will be going to pay for shared services of the Montreal Agglomeration. This new assessment by Montreal has created a new sense of urgency for Dollard-des-Ormeaux officials and council to alleviate the tax burden for residents in the upcoming municipal tax bill for 2023. 

“We expected an increase in the Shared Services bill from the Montreal Agglomeration for our residents. However, this is an average increase of $400 per household compared to the city of Montreal’s increase at $69 per household. We have finally achieved an unfortunate benchmark where more of what Dollard-des-Ormeaux residents pay on their municipal taxes goes to Montreal, than to pay for their local services. I find this is unacceptable! My attention now turns to our residents, and how this affects families in Dollard-des-Ormeaux. Our objective is to provide relief for our residents in the next budget”, said Alex Bottausci, Mayor.

The council had already approved the development of targeted fiscal relief initiatives thanks in part to years of strong financial management of the City’s budget. However, based on the disproportionate rise in the Montreal Agglomeration assessment, city council will be forced to reassess their tax plan for 2023.
