The City of Toronto, through a partnership with Toronto Hydro will install 32 on-street electric vehicle (EV) charging stations by the end of the year.

The chargers will be installed on 17 residential on-street permit parking locations.

The City of Toronto stated that they selected the locations to minimize distractions.

“Locations were selected because they have enough capacity for dedicated EV parking spots, which allows for easy installation with minimal disruption to pedestrians and the community,” the city said.

In a press release, the City of Toronto noted:

The expansion of public on-street EV charging infrastructure in Toronto supports the goals and targets of the City’s TransformTO Net Zero climate action strategy. It will encourage and make EV adoption more affordable by increasing access for households with limited ability to install on-site charging or who have less access to on-site dedicated parking opportunities.

The new EV chargers will be at the following locations:

  • 535 Runnymede Road
  • 64 Annette Street
  • 115 High Park Avenue
  • 685 Dovercourt Road
  • 705 Shaw Street
  • 41 Inglewood Drive
  • 39 Cuthbert Crescent
  • 580 Christie Street
  • 186 Carlton Street
  • 188 Carlton Street
  • 453 Jones Avenue
  • 503 Jones Avenue
  • 132 Chatham Avenue
  • 258 Riverdale Avenue
  • 31 Roseheath Avenue
  • 543 Strathmore Boulevard
  • 1856 Queen Street East

Neither the City of Toronto or Toronto Hydro confirmed when the EV chargers would open to the public.
