Tax Incentives & Funding Programs

Wooded Forest

Would you like to lower your property taxes by 75 percent or more?

Consider participating in the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP). This program is designed to encourage landowner participation in natural resource stewardship on private land in Ontario.  Those who enter the program (minimum 9.88 acres of forested or newly planted areas required) will receive a property tax reduction on the eligible area of their property. CVC Terrestrial Restoration and Management staff are certified to help you develop a management plan for your natural areas and qualify you to participate in the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP). Our goal is to work with you to develop a plan that will meet the aims and objectives for your property while improving the function and sustainability of the Credit River watershed.
