We are seeking input from the mining industry and other large industrial facilities that may qualify for inclusion in the federal Output-Based Pricing System (OBPS).
The OBPS is a federal program for large facilities that provides an alternative to the regular carbon levy. This program is designed to encourage emission reductions while maintaining competitiveness for energy-intensive and trade-exposed industries.
OBPS facilities pay the federal carbon levy if their emissions are above a certain limit. This limit is set by Canada so that the average facility pays the federal carbon levy on about 20 per cent of its emissions. If a facility's emissions are below the limit, it can receive credits that it can use in future years when its emissions are above the limit. It can also sell those credits to other facilities in the OBPS.
Responses will assist in identifying methods for:
- returning carbon pricing revenues to large industrial facilities; and
- will guide the creation of a carbon rebate program that supports the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
We’ll consider your input as we develop the Output-Based Pricing System carbon rebate program.
