To enroll, your company must be a member or an associate member, in good standing, of the Canadian Propane Association (CPA), plus:

  • Sign our Dangerous Goods Preparedness and Response Participation Agreement.
  • Provide evidence that you have at least $5 million of comprehensive general liability insurance covering your liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and/or flammable liquids operations.
  • Supply the names and 24-hour telephone numbers of at least two employees who are knowledgeable about your company's operations. These people will be our prime contacts for all emergency response assistance plan (ERAP) communications.

Once the required documents are received by ERAC, we will:

  • Work with you in Transport Canada’s online system, called ERAP Online Services (EOS).
  • Transport Canada will issue you, the Plan Participant member, an emergency response assistance plan (ERAP) number.
  • ERAC will provide you with supporting documents including your ERAP and appendices.

Fees and Costs

Your ERAP participation fees are based on your company's volume of LPG sales and volume of flammable liquids transported by rail, and geographic area of business. These fees are prorated to the overall costs of our annual operations.

If the plan is implemented, and your company is involved in the incident, you must also pay your share of all ERAC costs upon being invoiced. Typically, these costs include our fees for personnel and equipment as well as their personal expenses.
