Collingwood Town Hall
Collingwood Town Hall

There are three different ways to identify a piece of property. To illustrate, we will use the example of the Town Hall of Collingwood.

  1. Municipal Address: 97 Hurontario Street. This description can change over time as roads are renamed or closed and muncipalities amalgamate or change names.

  2. Assessment Roll Number: 043 031 010 002 006 00 00 00. This description is found on your tax bill, and is useful when researching property values.

  3. Legal Description: Plan 282, Lot 13 & part of Lot 14. This description is found on your tax bill and the property deed, and is necessary when researching at the Land Registry Office or in early tax assessment rolls.

When researching a property you will need any one or all of these identifiers. 

One very useful tool for obtaining this information is Simcoe County Maps, a website developed by the County of Simcoe. Using the Advanced tab, users can determine which Historic Geographic Township their property was located in, what their Assessment Roll Number is, and which Lot and Concession their property is on, in addition to much more.
