Property Taxes & Water Bills

The Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers regularly utilizes Part XI of the Municipal Act, R.S.O 2001, which deals with the Sale of Land for Tax Arrears as a method of collecting outstanding property taxes.  You are urged to keep your property taxes up to date to avoid this process.  Tax registration will add a significant cost to your tax account and could possibly result in the public sale of your property. 

2015 Interim Tax bills are in the mail and due on February 27th.  Please ensure your mailing address is correct to avoid misdirected mail.  We accept payment by cash, cheque, Interac debit, telephone/internet banking, pre-authorized debit and e-commerce through our website.  Please contact the municipal office for more information.

First quarter Water bills were sent out at the beginning of January and are due by March 31st.  To help manage your account, we offer monthly and quarterly preauthorized payments.  You also have the option to make payments using online banking.  If you have questions regarding these forms of payment, please contact the municipal office.

Welcome to the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers

Our community is nestled in the LaCloche Foothills region of Lake Huron's North Shore, encompassing a large rural area including the communities of Walford, Massey and Webbwood.

Incorporated in July of 1998, the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers offers all of the convenience of urban living amidst tranquil rural surroundings.

While larger urban centres such as Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie are only a short drive away, our many local retail and service establishments easily meet the needs of our residents, visitors and businesses alike.

A well-staffed medical clinic, volunteer fire department, two libraries, learning center, arena facility, two community halls, outdoor rinks, restaurants and farming history are but a few reasons why visitors to our community often become long-term residents.
