Alberta pauses fuel tax amid surge at the pump

March 8, 2022

The Alberta government has announced it will stop the collection of the provincial fuel tax as a way of providing relief from current high fuel prices for both individuals and businesses. Currently, Albertans pay 13 cents per litre in fuel tax. This change will come into effect April 1, 2022 and last until at least July 1, 2022.

Additional information will be provided to fuel retailers in the coming days. The provincial government will be providing $150 in electricity rebates to homes and businesses as a way of helping defray high costs. The rebate will be paid out in three $50 installments, credited to electricity bills.
