Changes coming into effect on January 1, 2020
In place of the Ontario Gas Card, the Ministry of Finance is proposing to accept Status Cards as proof of entitlement for the tax exemption:
“Regulation 533 has been amended to simplify how gas is purchased tax-exempt by First Nation people and entities on-reserve.
Effective January 1, 2020, the Ontario Gas Card will be replaced with the more secure federal Indian status card as proof of entitlement for First Nation people to buy tax-exempt gas on-reserve. Band councils, tribal councils and band empowered entities, will use an Ontario-issued certificate.”
