With the Ontario PC Party elected this past summer, one of the first orders of business was to cancel the cap and trade program and carbon tax that was introduced back in 2017. On July 3, 2018, Ontario Regulation 386/18 was passed revoking the Cap and Trade Program. On October 23, 2018, the federal government announced that it will impose a carbon tax in Provinces and Territories with no adequate emissions pricing plans of their own in 2019. Similar to the provincial carbon tax that was introduced back in 2017, LAS members can expect this additional charge to appear on their end use natural gas bills starting April 1, 2019.
