TORONTO, February 26, 2024 – The Canadian Propane Association is speaking with Ontario Members of Provincial Parliament to discuss prioritizing affordable energy. In its efforts to reduce emissions, the province must ensure that all Ontarians, no matter where they live, can access low-emission energy to heat their homes and businesses. Propane can play a crucial role in supplying cost-effective energy, especially for rural, remote, and Indigenous communities who do not have access to natural gas and electricity.
We need all forms of low-emission energy for a resilient and sustainable future for Canada, a future that includes low-emission propane. The government must develop policies that address reliability, affordability, and low-emission energy options equitably and ensure fulsome collaboration with all stakeholders.
OTTAWA, December 6, 2023 – The Canadian Propane Association (CPA) is extremely disappointed that the Senate of Canada has amended Bill C-234 delaying, possibly indefinitely, changes that would have reduced farming costs.
“This Bill should have been passed,” said Shannon Watt, President and CEO of the CPA. “Diesel and gasoline are already exempt from the carbon tax under the regulations, and it makes no sense that low-emission energy sources like propane and natural gas were excluded. This Private Members Bill was to correct that oversight but unfortunately, other agendas were at play.
The Canadian Propane Association is joining agriculture groups from across Canada in calling on the Senate of Canada to reject the proposed amendment to remove heating and cooling of barns and greenhouses from Bill C-234, An Act to amend the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act (GGPPA).

OTTAWA, September 29, 2023 — Heating needs to be affordable for everyone, not just the wealthy. As the House of Commons continues to debate C-56, The Affordable Housing and Groceries Act, the Canadian Propane Association (CPA) is calling on Members of Parliament to make life more affordable for Canadians this winter by eliminating the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from home energy bills.
OTTAWA, August 21, 2023 — As the Prime Minister meets with his federal cabinet to find ways to make life more affordable for Canadian families, his government should immediately consider removing the GST on home heating.
Canadian-made propane is often overlooked as an affordable, low-emission energy that is reliable, even when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow.
