The Government of Canada announce federal infrastructure investments totalling nearly $15 million for the installation of more than 2,350 EV chargers, 2,100 of which will be installed across the Greater Toronto Area.
Since 2016, the federal government has invested CDN$1 Billion to make EVs more affordable and chargers more accessible for Canadians and has approved funding to support the installation of more than 34,500 EV chargers to date.
This new funding was provided to 32 organizations, including municipalities, multi-resident buildings (MURBs), private firms, and utilities.
Canada recognizes that reducing pollution from the transportation sector is critical to achieving its climate targets. That’s why the federal government is making it easier for Canadians to purchase, charge, and drive electric vehicles.
Canada has ambitious climate change goals to build a cleaner, healthier, affordable, and sustainable future for all Canadians. This new investment is in support of Canada’s objective of adding 50,000 new zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) chargers to Canada’s network to help ensuring all new passenger vehicles sold in Canada are zero-emission by 2035.
