Inter-Municipal Assessment Review & Subdivision & Development Appeal Board


The Inter-Municipal Assessment Review, Subdivision and Development Appeal Board was established to hear assessment, subdivision, and/or development appeals within the towns of Hinton, Grande Cache, Edson, and the Municipality of Jasper.


The 2 types of review boards are:

  • Composite Assessment Review Board (CARB): Hears complaints regarding residential properties with four or more dwelling units as well as non-residential properties
  • Local Assessment Review Board (LARB) - Hears matters that are shown on an assessment notice for residential properties with three or fewer dwelling units and for farmland

Appeals of decisions of both boards now only go to the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench. There is no longer a right to appeal to another assessment review board. An appeal can only be made if you believe that the board made an error on a question of law or jurisdiction. Access further information.
