Government of Canada investing to build 160 EV fast chargers across Ontario

At the 2020 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, announced the Government of Canada will be investing $8 million to build 160 EV fast chargers at 73 locations across Ontario.

The investment, made through Natural Resources Canada’s Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (EVAFIDI), will see Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) team up to build one of Ontario’s largest charging networks.

This investment will add to the Ivy network, which both Hydro One and OPG have already started.

The Government of Canada has a target of 100 percent of passenger zero-emission vehicle sales by 2040. To help reach that goal, they will be investing over $300 million to build a coast-to-coast network.

The network of charging stations will be built at apartment buildings, public places and also workplaces. They will also be investing in building hydrogen stations in metropolitan centers (why?).
