A property may be eligible for the exemption if the applicant meets all the following criteria according to Policy 04-03 Permissive Tax Exemption:

  1. Is the registered owner of the property, or a tenant under a lease requiring it to pay taxes directly to the City.
  2. Is a British Columbia registered charity or non-profit Society.
  3. Qualifies for an exemption under the provisions of the Community Charter (Part 7, Division 7, Section 224) (other incidental uses would not disqualify the applicant but, if substantial, will reduce the percentage of exemption).

  5. Provide benefits and accessibility to the residents of the City of Rossland. Residents must be primary beneficiaries of the organization’s services. Council may provide partial exemptions.
