AMO appeared at the Senate Committee for National Finance yesterday to comment on the indexing of Canada’s Gas Tax Fund in Bill C-60. Comments noted that the proposed formula will delay the benefits of indexing.

As the administrator of Canada’s Gas Tax Fund in Ontario, AMO has the direct role in ensuring that approximately $590 million in federal funding is being delivered to 443 municipal governments across the province each and every year.

The funds in Ontario are distributed on a per capita basis and through its design, it provides flexibility which allows municipal governments to direct funding where they need it the most and on projects that contribute to local environmental sustainability.
