EDMONTON, Alta. — The cities of Calgary and Edmonton will continue to receive five cents per litre of fuel sold within those cities for the next three years, the province has confirmed.
That amounts to $500 million over the next three years for Alberta’s two major cities. In total, the cities will have about $900 million in transportation-related grants, including the fuel tax revenue. That money is to be redirected towards the cities municipal transportation needs.
Alberta collects nine cents per litre in fuel taxes, which is the lowest of all Canadian provinces. It’s also the only province to spend the entire amount – and then some – on the province’s transportation needs.
