Making sure there is a price on carbon pollution is an important part of the Government of Canada’s climate action plan. Under this plan, a new fuel charge was introduced as part of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act (the Act) which will be administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
The fuel charge is expected to be effective April 1, 2019 for the provinces of Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan and July 1, 2019 for the territories of Nunavut and Yukon. These will be known as "listed provinces". The fuel charge will not apply on fuel used outside these jurisdictions.
