OTTAWA — The Competition Bureau is investigating the Canadian Gas Association after allegations about misleading claims about natural gas.
The inquiry follows a complaint by a group supported by the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment alleging the CGA’s representations of natural gas as clean are false and misleading.
The complaint filed by six Canadian doctors, nurses and public health advocates in September also alleges that claims it is more affordable than other home heating systems are misleading.
In a letter released by CAPE, the regulator says it has started an inquiry related to the CGA’s representations in an advertising campaign as well as other comments.
The CGA is an industry lobby group for the natural gas industry.
The Competition Bureau launched an investigation earlier this year on potential greenwashing by RBC.
