Federal Carbon Pollution Pricing System
Published on: 05/12/2018
Starting in April 2019 and increasing in stringency over time, the federal pollution pricing system will add a nominal cost to everyday fuels. The fuel charge rates reflect a carbon pollution price of $20 per tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in 2019, rising by $10 per tonne annually to $50 per tonne in 2022. In Ontario, the fuel charge on gasoline, in 2019, will be 4.42 cents per litre and the fuel charge for natural gas used in home heating will be 3.91 cents per cubic metre. The OSWCA encourages its members to account for these fuel charge increases in their bid prices for infrastructure projects post-April 2019.
