Municipal Tax Sale Properties in GTA, Mississauga and Ontario

I received a question from a reader and thought I would share my answer with you.

Subject: Question/Your article on taxes

Hello Mark;

I found your web page and found your article fairly interesting. I am wondering if you could let me know how I can get a list of properties in default of taxes in Ontario/Canada before they appear on MLS? Is there a web site/Government web site that maintains such records? Or do I have to visit each municipality web site or directly call the municipality?


Hi A.,
Thanks for your comments. Yes, you have to do the work.
I do not know of such a list, it's mostly hard work to seek out tax sales, each municipality publishes their own lists, so you have to scour local newspapers to find them.
No government site that I know of, again, it's a municipal sale, so it tends to be very local.
Thank you
