In OFA’s letter addressed to Environment and Climate Change Canada, OFA stated its support for a Clean Fuel Standard requiring our energy streams to include higher ethanol content and other green sustainable fuels. OFA recommended that Clean Fuel Standard design and delivery should recognize the early actions and continued value of agriculture’s role and achievements in environmental stewardship, by supporting agricultural climate change research and tools meant to build adaptation and resiliency. OFA also recommended that all farm fuels be exempt from a carbon pricing fuel tax. OFA further recommended that Canada collaborate with other governments to establish and implement the same increased North American blend mandates for ethanol.
