Legal & Taxation

The taxation and legal department’s objectives are to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of administration (accountability, capacity, collaboration, communication, recognition); ensure consistent tax collection; and enhance relationships.

What We Do
The Taxation side of the department performs the duties required under the assessment and taxation bylaw and any other duties as required, effectively implementing and administering these bylaws and other bylaws of the band, when so directed by Council. In effect, we send tax notices to leaseholders on-reserve and ensure consistent collection of all property taxes owed.  The legal aspect of the department provides advice to the Musqueam Indian Band Council and when required, the administration.
