The Alberta government passed its carbon tax bill on Tuesday.

The tax, which comes into effect Jan. 1 next year, will be paid by Albertans through their home heating bills and at the gas pumps. Lower-income Albertans will start receiving rebates in January.

The tax is expected to collect $3 billion in revenues in the first two years, which the government plans to invest in green infrastructure like transit and projects to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency.
