Gas Cards

First Nation Purchase of Tax-exempt Gasoline

First Nation individuals, bands, Tribal Councils and band-empowered entities do not have to pay tax when buying gasoline for their own use from an authorized on-reserve retailer.

Discontinuing the Ontario Gas Card

Starting January 1, 2020, the Ontario Gas Card will be discontinued. Instead, First Nation individuals will use their federally issued Certificate of Indian Status (Status Card) to purchase tax-exempt gasoline on reserve. Bands, Tribal Councils and band-empowered entities will use an exemption certificate issued by the Ministry of Finance.
