In addition to the fuel tax, the GST and QST also apply to sales of fuel.

  • coloured fuel oil used for heating or to operate a stationary engine or certain propulsion engines

Program for Administering the Consumption Tax Exemption for First Nations

In effect since July 1, 2023, the Program for Administering the Consumption Tax Exemption for First Nations is gradually replacing the Program for Administering the Fuel Tax Exemption for Indians, while maintaining the fuel tax exemption under the same conditions as before. The new program allows registered First Nations members, band councils, tribal councils and band-empowered entities to purchase fuel at a service station situated on a reserve or in a First Nations settlement in Québec, without having to pay the fuel tax.

For more information, see Program for Administering the Consumption Tax Exemption for First Nations.
