Federal Fuel Charge Exemption

Navigating the Federal Fuel Charge Exemption

ATCO can help businesses and greenhouse operators navigate the federal government's fuel charge (also known as the carbon tax) exemption program, Since January 1, 2020, the federal carbon tax has been applied to all fossil fuels in Alberta, including natural gas, under the Greenhouse Pollution Pricing Act. This tax rate increases annually and may significantly impact natural gas bills.

Businesses and greenhouse operators may be eligible for a 100% exemption as registered emitters or up to 80% relief for greenhouse operators on the federal carbon charge.
