Abstract

Since January 1, 2017, Albertans have paid a carbon tax on combustible fuels. The costs to households will be a central issue in the upcoming provincial election. Eliminating Alberta’s carbon tax will mean the federal government imposes its backstop. This has implications for the distribution of net costs to households.
