Abstract

This bill amends the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act to extend the exemption for qualifying farming fuel to marketable natural gas and propane.

The exemption will cover marketable natural gas and propane used for all farm operations. Currently, carbon charge exemptions for these fuels apply only to greenhouse operations. The exemption applies only to provinces and territories that are subject to federal carbon pricing because they do not have climate pricing plans that meet federal standards.

Fuel used for farming activities, but not personal use, is eligible for the exemption.
