Learn more about the Downtown Tax Exemption Program.

Downtown revitalization is one of Council’s top priorities.

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is one of the first municipalities in Alberta to take advantage of the recent changes to the Municipal Government Act, which now allows for property tax exemptions on eligible developments.

In order to stimulate investment in downtown Fort McMurray, the Downtown Tax Exemption Program offers a tax exemption for up to five years to qualified properties. The tax exemption applies to new commercial developments and new additions to existing commercial properties.
