The Town of Gananoque currently provides tax relief to property owners with vacancies in commercial and industrial buildings.  A property owner may apply to the program to receive 30% (commercial properties) and 35% (industrial properties) of total property taxes back from the municipality.  This rebate is paid for as part of the overall tax levy.  A property owner can apply for a rebate once his/her property has been vacant for 90 consectutive days and can collect the rebate for as long as it remains vacant.

Feedback from property owners, business owners and the public is critical.
