About MTAP

The Municipal Tax Administration Program

MTAP is the only post-secondary program specific to municipal tax and revenue collection in Ontario. Created and maintained by OMTRA, it is considered essential to many positions in the field.

Relevant, practical training

A three-module correspondence course, MTAP was developed expressly for individuals working in municipal tax and revenue collection. It takes a strongly practical approach to building foundational skills.

OMTRA ensures MTAP remains fully current on legislation and best practices to reflect the realities of being a municipal tax and revenue collection professional in Ontario.

High standards, expert oversight

All grading is done by OMTRA members, who are specialists in their respective fields. The course is designed not only to meet the requirements of professionals working in the sector, but also to meet the stringent post-secondary educational standards of Seneca College , which administers the program.
