Since the election in June, we have seen the new Ford government move swiftly on its campaign commitment to repeal the Ontario cap and trade program. Once Bill 4, The Cap and Trade Cancellation Act passes, Ontario will be officially without a price on carbon; in accordance with federal legislation passed in June, this means that the federal carbon pricing backstop will come into force in Ontario on January 1st 2019. The provincial government has also launched a legal challenge to fight the imposition of a federal carbon tax, and has joined the existing challenge launched by the Saskatchewan government.
Until the decisions of these legal challenges are known, Ontario businesses may wish to better understand how the federal carbon pricing backstop works, and how it may affect them.
How does the federal carbon pricing system work, and what does this mean for you and your business?
On behalf of Sussex Strategy Group and ICF, we invite you to participate in our webinar, which will explain how the federal carbon pricing system works, and how it could be applied in Ontario.
