Will retailers receive fines after August 30th if the Federal Carbon Tax Transparency Sticker is not displayed?

A. For the first few months, inspectors will focus on education and helping gasoline retailers come into compliance. After the initial education period, warnings could be issued and charges laid as deemed necessary.

Under the Federal Carbon Tax Transparency Act, 2019, the maximum fine remains $5,000 per day for individuals and $10,000 per day for corporations.

The Chief Justice has issued a set fine order for these offences pursuant to the authority of a regulation under the Provincial Offences Act. It prescribes a fine of $150 for failing to display the sticker, and a fine of $500 for obstructing an inspection. Inspectors will have the option of issuing the lower fines.
