2020 Tax Bills

Beginning in 2020, the Township of Ryerson is providing residents with the option to receive their tax bills by e-mail, rather than through the regular postal system. To enroll in this system, please fill out the consent form found here and return by email.

The final tax billing will be mailed out in early July. Installments are due on August 21, 2020 and September 18, 2020. If you did not receive your tax bill, please call the office at (705) 382-3232 as soon as possible. Please note that a missing or undelivered tax bill does not preclude a property owner from their responsibility to pay taxes on time.

Fire Warning

Current fire rating: moderate, no day time burning

Effective Monday June 22, 2020 Ryerson Township staff will be temporarily relocating while office renovations are undertaken. We do not have an estimated return date at this time.

In the meantime, staff will be working out of the IDA Pharmacy basement in Burk’s Falls. We anticipate remaining closed to the public for the duration, but phone lines and emails will remain unchanged and still be monitored. The roads crew will also remain fully operational. A locked dropbox, labelled with the Ryerson Township logo, will be affixed outside the basement entrance off Main Street. Correspondence can also be sent through the mail.

If you have any questions, please call us at (705) 382-3232 or email admin@ryersontownship.ca. For questions regarding the roads department, please call (705) 783-0064. Please note that we currently have only one phone line in place. If you receive a busy signal, or the phone rings through, please call back at a later time.

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding.
