Who Is MPAC?

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is the largest assessment jurisdiction in North America. It assesses more than five million properties in Ontario, worth $3 trillion, in compliance with the Assessment Act and provincial regulations. The Corporation’s property assessments are the foundation of Ontario’s property tax system, which generates $30 billion annually for municipalities to supply local services.

For the cloud operations and infrastructure team, led by IT director Gopi Balasingam and senior infrastructure architects Chruz Cruz, David Zheng and Ken Tam, security, resilience and cost-efficiency are major preoccupations.
