Over 500 new public and city EV chargers are coming to Toronto

The Minister of Natural Resources and the City of Toronto announced a joint $9.9 million investment into new electric vehicle (EV) chargers in the city.

The almost ten million dollar investment will see 486 Level 2 chargers and 40 new DC fast chargers installed across the city by December 2025. The city has not released the exact locations of the chargers yet. But, considering the city investment, we can assume the chargers will mostly be on city-owned property.

The federal government is investing $5 million, and the City of Toronto is covering the remaining $4.9 million.

The new charging infrastructure will help increase public charger availability and support the City of Toronto’s upcoming expansion of the Toronto workplace charging program. This program will enable more charging at city-owned sites with the expectation of having 850 charging points at one hundred locations by 2025.

Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow had this to say about the announcement:

Toronto is an environmental leader. Torontonians are proud of the progress we are making to make the City clean, green and sustainable. This type of partnership with the federal government will speed up our ambitious plans to make our City’s fleet net zero.

The investment is part of the overall TransformTO Net Zero 2040 Strategy and is the fourth EV infrastructure project for which Toronto has received federal funding.
