In the latest round of Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program funding, the Government of Canada announced an investment of $3.9 million.
The funding is going to Green Economy Canada, which will install up to 350 EV chargers in Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick.
The announcement came from the Minister of Natural Resources Canada, Minister of Tourism and the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources yesterday.
Earlier this week, the Government of Canada provided $2 million for 110 EV chargers in Alberta.
Green Economy Canada will select recipients of funding through a transparent selection process. The requirements are pretty straightforward.
They include the chargers needing to be in public places, multi-unit residential buildings, on the street or workplaces or in facilities serving light-duty fleets.
Green Economy Canada will select exact locations after the application period ends.
The chargers will all come online by March 2024.
Since 2015, the Government of Canada has invested over $1 billion to make EVs more affordable and chargers more accessible.
