Purchasing or Selling Property
Purchasing: The Town of Canmore updates their records for both the utility and property tax accounts based on the information sent from Alberta Land Titles twice per month. Your name(s) will be automatically added to the utility billing account for the property at the time that we update the tax roll account. Utility bills will be sent to the owner's mailing address as recorded on the Title for the property. If your mailing address should be different than as registered please contact us in writing or click here to download a fillable Change of Mailing Address form.
Selling: If you are currently enrolled in the Pre-authorized Utility Payment Plan (PUPP) for the property that you are selling, you (or your lawyer) must notify the Town of Canmore Utility Department in writing in order to terminate the plan. The PUPP is not transferrable. If you are moving to another property within Canmore you must re-apply for the PUPP for your new property.
Things to Remember When Cancelling Utility Services
Cancel Pre-authorized Payment Plan
If you were participating in the Pre-authorized Utility Payment Plan (PUPP) and have sold the property you need to inform us, in writing, of your desire to cancel this program.
Cancellations must be received at least 4 working days prior to the due date.

If mail sent by the Town of Canmore Tax or Utilities Departments is returned by the post office as "undeliverable", we will make a reasonable effort to locate the owner(s). If our efforts are unsuccessful the returned mail items will be stored in the tax roll file and a notation will be made in our database.
It is the owners' responsibility to keep their contact information with the Town of Canmore current.
