One-window guide for EV charger grants opens

Jan 20, 2023 | Public | 0 comments

Prospective investors in electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment can now look to a one-window guide of the grants available through various Canadian government programs. The new online reference hub has been design ed to steer businesses, not-for-profit groups and municipalities to applicable options coordinated by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) or designated delivery agents of the zero-emission vehicle infrastructure program (ZEVIP).

Current programs are targeted to a range of potential proponents from landlords seeking to install EV charging stations in commercial or multifamily buildings to developers of commercial-scale EV charging operations to municipalities investing in zero-emission transit fleets. The new reference hub includes a basic questionnaire to help identify the best fit for funding candidates’ needs, and provides a gateway to details and application processes for each program.

“Investments in infrastructure that accelerate Canada’s transition toward net-zero are a key element of the CIB’s mandate,” affirms Ehren Cory, chief executive officer of Canada Infrastructure Bank, which collaborated with NRCan in the development of the online guide.

The site also features a portal for recruiting organizations potentially positioned to coordinate and deliver ZEVIP funding in their communities or regions. For EV drivers, it offers a locator app to identify EV charging and alternative fuelling stations throughout Canada and the United States.
