In November 2019, the BC government introduced BC's Fuel Price Transparency Act.

The Fuel Price Transparency Act requires companies in the gasoline and diesel (fuel) industry in British Columbia (BC) to report data on their activities to the BCUC.

BCUC’s Role

In March 2020, the BC government designated the BCUC as the Administrator of the Fuel Price Transparency Act. As the Administrator, the BCUC is responsible for collecting fuel data to promote market competitiveness, and public confidence in the competitiveness of the market. The BCUC does not regulate fuel prices in BC. More information about the Administrator duties is outlined in the Fuel Price Transparency Act.

The BCUC launched GasPricesBC.ca to provide the public with more information about the factors that influence fuel prices in BC.

In August 2020, the FPT Regulations and Special Direction were announced.

The BC government established the FPT Regulations by Order in Council No. 474/20 and issued a Special Direction, requiring those in the wholesale industry and retail dealers of reportable fuels to submit data to the BCUC.
