Ontario carbon tax to be removed from natural gas bill by Oct. 1

Residents and businesses in Ontario will see their natural gas bill drop by Oct. 1 with the repeal of the provincial carbon tax, Premier Doug Ford announced on Wednesday.

The government said removing the carbon tax means a reduction of approximately 3.3 cents per cubic metre on the price of natural gas, which will save consumers about $80 a year and businesses up to $285 a year.

“Consumers will pay less because we are removing the cost of the carbon tax from the natural gas rates,” Ford said during a visit at a restaurant in Milton. “Reducing energy costs is a key part to our promise to the people of Ontario.”
