Ontario CAP and TRADE Program

As of today, there are only 39 days left to register in Ontario’s Cap and Trade Program. This deadline (November 30th, 2016) cannot be extended.

 You must be registered in Ontario’s Cap and Trade Program before you can participate in Ontario’s first cap and trade auction in March 2017. Registration is also required if you wish to participate in a practice auction that will be held in January 2017.

Cap and Trade Program Registration

Registration takes time to complete.

  • Registration is a two-part process. Part 2 cannot be completed until Part 1 is completed, submitted to and approved by the Ministry.
  • The time required to meet some of the requirements of registration, such as the notarization of documents, may be outside of your direct control. This should be taken into account when you are planning for your registration.
  • Completing the Business Relationship Disclosure Form can be an extensive process.

Auction and Practice Auction

Ontario will host training webinars in December before the practice auction in January 2017.  

To be eligible to participate in an auction, your CITSS registration must be submitted early enough so that it can be reviewed and approved in time to participate in a scheduled auction. Register in CITSS as soon as possible to be eligible to participate in the January 2017 practice auction.

Additional auction information will be posted to Ontario’s cap and trade website (https://www.ontario.ca/page/cap-and-trade) next week.

Ontario’s Cap and Trade Help Desk team is available to answer your registration and auction questions. Contact the help desk by email at CThelp@ontario.ca or toll free at 1-888-217-3326.
