Regulatory Affairs
May 16, 2019

The TSSA is asking propane fuel suppliers to inspect and advise customers that non-compliance with unvented propane barn heaters in some Ontario agricultural facilities will lead to a termination of fuel supply. While the CPA and its members are at the forefront of promoting safe practices in the handling of propane, the Association believes that asking propane suppliers to threaten to refuse vital propane heating fuel to Ontario farmers as leverage to enforce these safety measures goes too far. 

Transport Canada has made administrative updates, with no changes to the clauses on Equivalency Certificate SU 11248 (Ren. 5). The previous Equivalency Certificate is hereby revoked and superseded by the new Equivalency Certificate, which is available on the CPA website.

The CPA is pleased to welcome Rebecca Keeler as the new Vice-President, Regulatory Affairs and Safety.

Congratulations to the Association Québécoise du Propane and the entire propane community for the Association’s 60 years of service to the industry!

Since opening its doors in 1959, the AQP has been actively involved in the development of the propane community, bringing together important stakeholders in the province of Quebec. Over the past 60 years, the AQP has provided support and resources to enhance and propel the propane industry forward. The CPA commends the AQP on this significant achievement.
