Colwood's Mayor and Council recognize that many not-for-profit organizations provide valuable contributions that enrich the lives of people in our community. 

The City of Colwood accepts applications from registered charities and non-profit organizations for permissive property tax exemptions. Applicants who own and occupy their property and meet the requirements stated in the Community Charter and Council Policy may qualify for a property tax exemption.

As per Council Policy, most permissive tax exemptions are granted for a four-year term coinciding with the Council election term.  Applications received and approved mid-term will be harmonized with the remaining term. Most exemptions granted in 2023 will be in place for the 2024-2027 taxation years. Read the full Colwood Tax Exemption Policy.

Please complete the 2023 Permissive Tax Exemption form.
