Changes to Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit Effective Jan. 1, 2019

Changes to Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC) will be effective January 1, 2019

A legislative amendment was passed this spring that changes how the education property tax credit (EPTC) will be applied to resident homeowner's property taxes. Effective January 1, 2019 EPTC will be applied to school taxes only.

Important changes:

  • The EPTC will no longer apply to municipal property taxes;
  • The property tax minimum threshold amount of $250 has been eliminated;

This means that about approx. 200 of our residents could be affected and are going to see an INCREASE in their tax bill ranging anywhere from $2.00 to $400.00.

For further information contact the Manitoba Tax Assistance Office at 204-948-2115, or toll free at 1-800-782-0771, or e-mail TAO@gov.mb.ca

Recycling Process 

The RM is now commingling recycling into large metal blue bins at all our locations (Inwood WTS, Chatfield WTS and Meleb Waste Disposal Grounds). We no longer require you to sort these items that were being previously sorted into the large white grain bags. These items will be put all together into one bin except for the glass. Glass is to be put into the bin for glass only. Also plastic bags are not to be put into the bins so the recycles must we dumped into the bins loose. There are smaller recycle bins beside the big blue recycling bins to dispose of the plastic bags.

 The items allowed in the bins are:

(no glass in mixed bin)

  • Mixed Paper and Newsprint (no books)

  • Boxboard and Cardboard (flattened)

  • Plastic Bottles, Jugs and Food Containers (rinsed) #1-7 plastics

  • Aluminum and Metal Cans

  • Cartons and Juice Boxes 

Keep out plastic bags, paper towels, styrofoam, wrappers, food waste and liquids.

All other recycle items such as tires, electronics, scrap metal, paint, oil etc. remains the same and have separate designated areas to place these items. Tree branches, leaves and untreated wood are to be put in the burn cell area.

The process change is to encourage more recycling by making it user friendly and therefore having less waste going into our landfill. The more recycling we do the more refund the municipality receives back and the cleaner of an environment we have to live in. We are not charging tipping fees as of this time but this may change in the future in order to ensure we are all doing our part by recycling what we can.


Signage / Civic Addressing

New “blue” signs are being put up at the end of your driveways. These are the 911 initiative to help emergency persons locate you quicker should you be in need of assistance. It will also be used as your new civic address.

Please memorize your road number (including the NE or NW part) as well as your new civic number (blue sign), you will need both the road number as well as the civic number in order for emergency persons to locate you.

As we are still in the installation process it will take time for all residents to receive their numbers and therefore the information has not yet been submitted to Manitoba Telecom Services to synchronize the data to ensure that these numbers are identifiable when calling 911.

Thank you for your patience and we will keep you updated to when we are closer to completion and your civic number has been entered into the system to become identifiable when calling 911.
