I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new agreement recently finalized by your Canadian Ground Water Association with Petro-Canada.
The CGWA Executive has agreed to endorse Petro-Canada as our national fuel company and in turn, Petro-Canada has agreed to reduce retail gas and diesel prices to our Association members by 2.5 cents per litre or approximately 11.5 cents per gallon. This is based on a minimum usage of 300 litres or 66 gallons per month.
The Executive and Petro-Canada has agreed that .5 cents per litre will automatically be rebated to the Canadian Ground Water Association for research and development. The remaining 2 cents may go to the cardholder, your Provincial Association, the Canadian Association or whatever your Provincial Association decides. Depending on total volumes across Canada, there may be a small rebate at years’ end to the Canadian Association.
Please let me give you a few scenarios of how this rebate or reduction may be used or utilized. Take for example, the Province of Alberta using 10 million litres of fuel. The 2 cents would allow for $20,000 to the Alberta Association and $5,000 to the Canadian Association or a split would allow for example $10,000 to the Alberta Association and $10,000 to the cardholder based on usage, or $10,000 to the Canadian Association, if this was the Province’s wish. The Provincial Association will decide how the money will be used, as long as it is used for Association business, research and development or back to the cardholder. The Canadian Association and Executive will not be making any decisions on the usage of the 2 cents unless a Provincial Association asks them.
The Canadian Association is willing to negotiate with Provinces who at present are not members of the CGWA, i.e. Quebec and Saskatchewan, if they are interested in rejoining the Canadian Association to take advantage of this fuel rebate or reduction.
Your Canadian Association is also negotiating reduced prices on bulk fuel and lubricants provided that you use your special card for such purchases.
I have supplied your Provincial Association Executives and Canadian Directors with information, applications and this letter as detail of this program for each and every member in good standing. Each member is responsible to apply for their own special Petro-Canada card and each individual is responsible for payments for fuel consumed by the use of their card.
Please consider applying for this special card, whether you use bulk fuel or whatever. Online registration is available through this site. I am sure we all buy gasoline or diesel at the pumps and the money saved can be invaluable to you and your Associations, both provincial and national.
I would also point out that because the monthly limit is so small, 300 litres or 66 gallons, we encourage the technical and M & S members of our Association to get involved as well. We need everyone’s help.
In closing, please consider this an opportunity to help fund your Associations. We all purchase fuel. The Canadian groundwater industry uses approximately 50 million litres of fuel on an annual basis. Consider this an opportunity to allow our National and Provincial Associations to help you and your industry.
If you have any questions when you receive your information and application, please feel free to contact me or your Provincial Director at your convenience.
