Tesla is looking to close the year out with a bang, starting construction on three new Superchargers, one each in Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec. This brings the number of Superchargers that have started construction in Canada recently to nine, with another two in Nova Scotia (Digby and Yarmouth), one in New Brunswick (Miramichi), another in Valleyview (Alberta), Yorkton (Saskatchewan), and Mississauga (Ontario).
Going from west to east, first up is the Whitecourt Supercharger in Alberta. According to a listing on Plugshare, construction has just started on a 8 stall Supercharger at 4223 52 Ave. While construction has only just started and there is no Supercharger equipment on site, the Town of Whitecourt confirmed with Electric Vehicle Association of Alberta (EVAA) member Adam Gates that this will be a Supercharger.
Next up is Manitoba, where Tesla has started construction this week of a Supercharger in Russell. This was spotted by Tesla Owners Saskatchewan member Brad Stebelski, who shared a picture showing all the groundwork has been completed at the Coop Gas Bar (206 Main St.). Again no Supercharger equipment is on site yet, but the layout and bollards that have been installed are the same that Tesla uses. Another photo taken by TMC forum member FeFox indicates this will have 8 stalls, along with two FLO DC fast chargers.
Finally in Quebec there is the Sainte-Marie Supercharger. This actually started construction at the tail end of September at the IGA des Sources Sainte-Marie (1000 Bd Vachon N). Based on photos shared on the TMC forum, this looks like it will be another 8 stall station. This time there is Supercharger equipment already on site, leaving no doubt as to what will be going in.
According to Tesla, this site is scheduled to open before the end of the year.
