Commercial New Build Incentive

The Commercial New Build Incentive offers property tax breaks to new or existing commercial businesses in the Town of Ponoka that build a new property (or demolish and build a new property) on commercially-zoned land in the Town.

Eligible businesses will receive the following reductions in their municipal property taxes over a three-year period, beginning the first year after the occupancy permit is issued: 

  • A 75% reduction in the municipal portion of their property taxes in the first year;
  • A 50% reduction in the second year; and
  • A 25% reduction in the third year.

The application period for the one-time-per-business Commercial New Build Incentive began January 1, 2021, and will continue until December 31, 2022. If the owner sells the property during the three-year incentive program, the property tax credits will stay with the property and transfer to the new owner.
