The federal carbon charge is now included on your bill
As part of the Government of Canada’s carbon pollution pricing program, a carbon charge now applies on the natural gas you use (with the exception of facilities that have an exemption certificate). This charge is shown as a separate line item on your bill.
The federal carbon charge rate is 3.91 cents per cubic metre (m3) of natural gas used. This charge will increase annually each April.
Your total cost is determined by multiplying the federal carbon charge rate by the number of cubic metres of gas you used, which can be found on your natural gas bill.
Natural gas is dependable and affordable energy that enhances people's quality of life and helps local business and industry prosper and grow. It continues to be the lowest-cost energy source.
