História administrativa

The office of assessor was a position created yearly under by-law by the City of Guelph Council and its predecessor, the Town Council of Guelph. Under by-law, one full-time assessor was appointed by Council. Provisions in the by-law also enabled Council to appoint a second assessor if circumstances warranted. By 1923, the title of the position had changed to Assessment Commissioner, and provisions were made for the hiring of one full-time assessor and a part-time assessor, on an as-needed basis, for the completion of the assessment. Additionally, the assessors were given responsibility for the collection of the City's poll tax, which was turned over to the City Treasurer. The City of Guelph continued to conduct property assessments until 1970, when the Province of Ontario assumed responsibility of municipal property assessment.

História custodial

The custodial history for the majority of these records, prior to their transfer to the Guelph Public Library archives, is not known or documented.

Âmbito e conteúdo

Series consists of five hundred and seventy bound assessment ledgers recording assessed real property values used in the calculation of property taxes in the City of Guelph.

The assessment ledgers may document property owner and occupant names, addresses, occupations, and ages, description of property (including survey and plan information), real property values and assessments, and statistical information regarding religion, school support, sex and age of residents, and number of dogs in the household. Residents were able to challenge assessed property values in the Court of Revision, which had authority to revise assessed values and regulated the record-keeping practices of the assessors.
The assessment ledgers are arranged by year and then alphabetically by ward name. The information was recorded by Assessors and arranged initially by divisions within the town. With the designation as a town under the Municipal Act of 1856, Guelph was divided into four assessment wards (North, West, East and South). By 1935, the number of assessment wards had expanded to six (St. James, St. Andrew's, St.David's, St. John's, St. Patrick's and St. George's) as the City's population grew and boundaries expanded. The City and its wards were divided into twelve divisions until the the 1950's when the number of divisions were increased.

Please note that several assessment ledgers dating from 1955 show duplicate titles or overlapping divisions. It is believed that the recording of assessment information for the ward required two ledgers.
