Effective April 1, 2019, as part of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, the federal government introduced a fuel charge on all carbon-based fuels consumed in the Province of Ontario.
Fuel charge rates are set annually. This year on April 1, 2022 the fuel charge will be at a price of $50.00 CDN per tonne CO2e, or 7.74 cents per litre of propane.
There is an 80% exemption on the fuel charge when the propane is used for heating or generating carbon dioxide (CO2) at a commercial greenhouse operation, where plants are grown with a reasonable expectation of profit. For more information on the exemption please visit
