First reported by the Globe and Mail, Ottawa will only be taxing heavy industrial emitters once they exceed 80 or 90 per cent of average emissions.
Steel, which also had tariffs imposed by the U.S.in June, was one of the industries given the biggest break by Ottawa last week when Environment Minister Catherine McKenna increased the amount of emissions companies can produce before they have to start paying the carbon price.
Saskatchewan's government filed its latest court challenge against the federal carbon tax on Monday, before reports of the carbon tax scale back first surfaced.
Stewart Elgie, director of the Environment Institute at the University of Ottawa, said the government is making a smart change because it reflects the reality that very few industries will be able to cut emissions more than 10 to 20 per cent over the next five years.
This federal plan will only be used in provinces that don't have their own federally-approved carbon pricing system in place by January 1.
"We've been clear since the beginning that we would be consulting with industry and environmental experts to find the best ways to reduce emissions, improve energy efficiency, and stay competitive - and that's exactly what we've done".
McKenna said Wednesday the government heard from companies that the initial plan as announced last winter was too onerous. While Mr. Ford has said he is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the Premier and his environment minister have ruled out any use of taxes to do so.
But Scott Moe still wants Ottawa to cancel the tax entirely.
Stewart Elgie, director of the University of Ottawa's Institute of the Environment, said the move to ease carbon taxes is necessary to give incentive for businesses to stay in Canada while they develop solutions to lower their carbon footprint.
"Our two provinces are united in the belief that a federal carbon tax is an ineffective policy that will not significantly reduce emissions and will instead make life unaffordable for families, and that it is unconstitutional for the federal government to impose a carbon tax on certain provinces based on their evaluation of provincial climate change policies", the statement read. Even with the change, Saskatchewan's stance remains the same.
In May Cement Association of Canada vice-president, Adam Auer, urged a senate committee on the carbon tax framework "to be attuned to the reality that our competitors in import and export markets don't have similar pricing systems".
