Regulations Amending the Renewable Fuels Regulations (SOR/2011-143)

The Regulations Amending the Renewable Fuels Regulations set a date of coming into force of July 1, 2011 for the 2% requirement for diesel fuel and heating distillate oil. The coming into force of this requirement provides further reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, in addition to the reductions estimated from the 5% in gasoline requirement of the Regulations. The two regulatory requirements combined with provincial regulations will ensure a total volume of renewable fuel that will reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by up to four megatonnes - about the equivalent of taking one million vehicles off the road.
