Alberta Assessors Association

About: What Is an Assessor

Assessors measure value on all types of property, from houses to industrial facilities, from shopping centres to oil and gas pipelines and farmland. Assessors place a value on property for taxation purposes and their work, therefore, has an effect on people who own property. Assessors must consistently work to ensure that property taxes are equitably allocated among all property owners based on the value of their property.

Assessors can work in various employment positions: management, administration, legislation, data collection and/or data management. Assessors typically handle both administrative and data collection functions; as a result work can be in both an office setting and in the field. While many assessors are generalists working on all types of property in a municipality, many specialized positions also exist that allow assessors to focus on areas that interest the individual the most.
