Edmonton News Release: property assessment notices are on the way

2023 property assessment notices are on the way

More than 400,000 property assessment notices were mailed to Edmonton property owners today. Property assessments are a key part of the property tax process, as they help to determine each Edmonton property owner’s fair share of taxes to support the City’s programs and services.

Property assessment notices provide important information about what property owners can expect on their property tax bill in the spring. Once property owners have their notices, they can follow three steps to confirm the accuracy of the notice: 

New Year’s Eve Downtown Festival and Fireworks returns to Sir Winston Churchill Square

The New Year’s Eve fireworks were temporarily relocated to the Alberta Legislature Grounds during LRT construction and refurbishments to Churchill Square; they were then cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The evening will include free family-friendly entertainment, skating on the City Hall Plaza ice rink, and enchanting art installations. Programming will be underway from 6:30 p.m. to midnight.

So bundle up, grab your skates and glide the night away to music by DJ Funkasaurus Rex. Let emcee Sissy Thiessen Kootenayoo take you through a wonderful night full of exciting performances, including music by Melafrique, Anishinaabe Singers and Dancers, led by Steven O’Chiese, and Métis fiddler Colton Bear from the Bear Country Band.

Enjoy captivating fire performances by FloWarrior, and special figure skating performances from Ice Palace Figure Skating Club, along with roving stilt walkers, jugglers, acrobatics, and festive songs from a quartet of Kokopelli singers. 

Warm up around a firepit, and purchase a warm meal or snacks from on site food trucks. The Hallway Café will also be open for warm drinks and sweet treats, accompanied by the musical talents of Sticks and Stone Percussion. (Please note that, other than the Hallway Café, City Hall will not be open to the public on New Year’s Eve.)

Extreme cold weather continues

Pets are vulnerable to frostbite, particularly the ears, paws, nose and tip of the tail. Frostbite is sometimes hard to detect. Frostbitten areas initially turn a reddish colour then gray or bluish. If you suspect your pet has frostbite, take them to their veterinarian for further care. Also, you can contact 311 if you see an animal in distress due to these cold temperatures.

For more information about protecting your pets in cold weather or how to report an animal in distress, visit edmonton.ca/petsafety.

Juno Award winner Garth Prince on his Juno award and more

I felt happy for the people who believed in me. I always believed in my ability to create high-quality music, but like a tree, I needed the right environment to reach my full potential. My support came from family, funding bodies like The Edmonton Arts Council, and my Canadian band members, who trusted my artistic leadership. Music teachers supported my growth by booking me to perform and teach workshops in schools.
