Tesla’s Supercharger team in Canada can celebrate a new milestone, with the fast charging network now totaling 200 stations across the country. The milestone was reached with the opening of the Grimsby Supercharger in Ontario on Wednesday.
Tesla built its first Supercharger station in Canada in Squamish, BC in 2014, two years after the very first station opened in California. That was at a time when the company was only producing the Model S, but with the introduction of the Model X in 2015, and later the Model 3 and Model Y in 2017 and 2020 respectively, the Supercharger network in Canada has grown significantly since then.
Perhaps the biggest moment for the Supercharger network in Canada came just before Christmas in 2019 when the company turned on more than 20 stations in the span of just a few days, giving the network complete coast-to-coast coverage.
Now Tesla has reached another significant Supercharger milestone in Canada. On Wednesday the Tesla Charging account on X (formerly Twitter) announced the Grimsby Supercharger on South Service Road in Ontario was officially open, which according to data compiled by supercharge.info is the 200th open and active Supercharger station in Canada.

With the opening of the 200th station, there are now 1,946 Supercharger stalls across Canada, for an average of 9.73 stalls per station. The largest station in the country is in Richmond, BC, where a 40-stall station opened in September.
Now that Tesla has reached 200 stations in Canada, it is not going to stay there for very long. There are currently 18 stations under construction across the country, 10 of which were started in the last month alone.
Tesla also celebrated another Supercharger milestone earlier this year, announcing the opening of the 50,000 stall in the world. The 50,000th stall is located in Roseville, California, and is easy to spot as it is painted in Tesla’s new Ultra Red colour, with a special 50,000th plaque attached.
