Fuel prices to rise due to Carbon Tax increase

The Department of Community and Government Services would like to inform Nunavummiut that effective April 1, 2021, the rates for the Federal Carbon Tax will be increased on fuel products sold throughout Nunavut.

The relevant rate changes are as follows:

Federal Carbon Tax Rates (per litre)      
Fuel Type Current Increase Effective April 1, 2021
Gasoline $0.0663 $0.0221 $0.0884
Diesel $0.0805 $0.0268 $0.1073
Naphtha $0.0676 $0.0226 $0.0902

The Nunavut Carbon Rebate, a Government of Nunavut initiative, offsets the Federal Carbon Tax by 50 per cent and reduces the amount Nunavummiut pay for fuel. Aviation fuels and diesel for generating electricity are exempt from the Carbon Tax.
