Please take note that a technical error occurred while updating the municipal data base for the deposit of the new 2019-2020-2021 triennial roll regarding property area. You will notice on your tax bill that a decimal point was moved one position to the right. This error in no way affects neither your evaluation nor the calculation of your municipal taxes. The necessary corrections were made and will be correct on all future correspondence from the Municipality. We apologize for this confusion.


The new assessment roll was deposited in October 2018 and will serve for taxation purposes for the years 2019-2020-2021. To understand what follows the deposit of the new roll, please click here.


The basic rate of the general property tax is fixed at $0.34 per $100.00 evaluation on the immovables on the basis of their value entered on the property assessment roll.

The surtax is fixed at $0.47 per $100.00 evaluation on the immovables identified on the assessment roll as belonging to the category of non-residential immovables on the basis of their value entered on this roll.

A tax for the water supply service is imposed on certain sectors at the following tariff:


Boulevard Valcartier, rue Caroline, Domaine Saint-Gabriel, Villas Saint-Gabriel and several residences on 5th Avenue (first portion)


$125.00 per residence


The payment of the general land tax, the surtax on non-residential immovables, taxes and other compensations are to be paid in a maximum of three (3) payments. (under $300.00 in one payment)

The first payment, in the event that only one payment is due in full, must be made no later than April 1st, 2019.

If applicable, July 1st, 2019 is the final date on which the second payment must be made.

The second payment is due 120 days from the date that the tax bill was issued and only if your tax bill is over $300.

If applicable, September 1st, 2019 is the final date on which the second payment must be made.

The third payment is due 180 days from the date that the tax bill was issued and only if your tax bill is over $300

Therefore, if your first payment is late, even of a few days, you automatically lose your privilege to pay in three (3) payments. The total balance of your account will have to be paid immediately with interest.

We strongly recommend that you send post-dated cheques with the detachable coupons at the bottom of your invoice, in this, in order to avoid annual interest of 12% payable on all late payments.

You can also pay your municipal taxes, your tax adjustments or your transfer taxes (welcome taxes) in cash (at the counter), by cheque made in the name of Municipalité de Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier (at the counter, by mail of in the night deposit), by Interac (at the counter) and by Internet, by phone or at the ATM at your financial institution (National BankCaisse Populaire DesjardinsBanque ScotiaBMO Bank of MontrealRoyal Bank of CanadaCIBCTD Canada Trust and Laurentian Bank). For payments by Internet, the reference number corresponds to your matricule number excluding the first numbers (22025) and the hyphens.


Transfer taxes are payable in only one payment within the thirty (30) days following the issuance of invoice. The amount constituting the base of taxation is the higher of the two following amounts: the evaluation or the sale price stipulated in the notarial deed. Usually, the amount of your transfer taxes is written in the deed executed by the notary at the time of the sale.

Transfers of immovables not entered in the land survey registry

As of March 18, 2016, legislative modifications relative to the Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables came into force, among others:

  • the establishment of a disclosure mechanism for deed transfers;
  • the establishment of a transfer disclosure mechanism for properties not entered in the land registry

Citizens having purchased an immovable (e.g. mobile home on a rented land, cottage on Public land) not registered with the land survey registry office must now pay a transfer tax.

The purchaser has the obligation to disclose to the Municipality, within 90 days of the transaction, the information related thereto using the Non Registered Transfer Disclosure Form.

Once completed, the form accompanied by the transfer document (deed) must be sent to or by mail at 1743 Valcartier Boulevard, Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, Quebec G0A 4S0.

Note that Revenu Québec will impose a residual tax equal to 150% of the transfer tax on a transferee (buyer) who has failed to produce the notice of disclosure to the municipality.
