Public consultation on Canada's Investment Tax Credit for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS)
In Budget 2021, the government proposed the introduction of an investment tax credit for capital invested in CCUS projects with the goal of reducing emissions by at least 15 megatonnes of CO2 annually. The federal government intends for the new investment tax credit be available for a broad range of CCUS applications across different industrial subsectors (e.g. concrete, plastics, fuels), including blue hydrogen projects and direct air capture projects, to the extent that captured CO2 is not used in enhanced oil recovery projects. The government is seeking input from all industrial subsectors, recognizing that various subsectors face different challenges in adopting CCUS.
This consultation seeks input from stakeholders on the design of the investment tax credit for CCUS, including the rate of the incentive, to achieve the government's goal. The government is also requesting information about potential CCUS project proposals from industrial subsectors that could contribute to the government's goal of reducing emissions by at least 15 megatonnes of CO2 annually.
Input is invited from stakeholders including environmental groups, advocacy groups, and industry (including all industrial subsectors, such as direct air capture, power generation, fertilizer, cement, refining, and oil sands). Interested tax practitioners and members of the public are also welcome to provide input.
- Input deadline: September 7, 2021
