Dear Waterloo County Propane Customer;
The Canadian Federal Government has introduced a carbon- based “Fuel Charge” program through its Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act. This program requires that a carbon fee be charged for the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that Ontario homes and businesses emit. The “Fuel Charge” program will require Distributors of propane to charge a carbon fee on every litre of propane sold commencing April 1, 2019.
As a result of this new Government levy, Waterloo County Propane is required by the Federal Government to charge a carbon fee, of $0.031 cents per litre on all propane sales. The amount of this carbon fee is determined by the Federal Government and is subject to change from time to time as directed by the Federal Government.
If you have any questions or concerns related to this program, contact Canada Revenue Agency helpline @ 1-866-439-4202, Below is the Government of Canada website that provides information related to the new “Fuel Charge” program:
