Daylight Savings Time [Bill 203]

On September 5th, Scott Hippe from the Belvedere GC who was representing the Canadian Society of Club Managers and Brent Hutcheon, NGCOA Canada made a presentation to the Standing Committee on Alberta's Economic Future: Bill 203 Review. We gave the committee the highlights of the latest Canadian Golfs Economic Impact Study and echoed the Alberta Golf Industries position on the time change.

We gave the committee our support of the proposal, and reiterated that our support would only be if they did not change the wording and spirit of the bill. The committee understood our need for the added evening sunlight and that a deviation from the current evening sunlight would be devastating for our industry. Please keep yourself informed on this issue and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Carbon Tax on Bulk Fuel

If you have an up to date Alberta Fuel Tax Exempt License you will not be paying the additional Alberta Carbon Tax on your bulk fuel. Click here for a message sent to customers of a bulk fuel supplier in December. If you receive invoices with a Carbon Levy added and you have an up-to-date Fuel Exempt License, please contact your supplier and Erica Beck, NGCOA Canada - Alberta Regional Director, at 866-626-4262 extension 40 immediately so we can work to get the fee removed and rebated back to you.
