The federal government is promising they will return 90 percent of all the money it collects from a carbon price directly to the Canadians who pay it.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unveiled the details of the carbon tax rebates as he tries to convince Canadians on the need to pay for pollution.
The rebates will only apply in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick, the four provinces which have refused to impose their own carbon price and continue to do so.
Officials say nearly three quarters of people in those provinces will get back more than they end up paying out as fuel costs rise to incorporate the carbon tax.
The average price of pollution in those four provinces will be from $256 to $598.
The remaining 10 percent will be distributed to small and medium sized businesses, schools, hospitals and other organizations who can’t pass on their costs from the carbon tax directly to consumers.
