In a letter addressed to the Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau, OFA stated its position that the agricultural sector should have an across-the-board exemption from the Federal Carbon Pollution Pricing System (Federal CPPS) given the proven trade-exposure, threats to competitiveness, and threats to food security. Currently the Federal CPPS only exempts some farm activities and some fuel purchases from the carbon charge. OFA strongly recommended expanding the exemption to ensure all farm operations receive relief from the Federal CPPS. OFA also requested a rebate application process be put in place for farmers who may have inadvertently been charged the Federal CPPS.
