The Government of Canada has announced the Durham Region in southern Ontario will be getting 60 new electric vehicle (EV) chargers, part of a $296,000 CAD investment.
Federal funding is coming through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP). The Canadian government wants all new cars sold in Canada to be zero-emission by 2040.
“We are providing greener options for Canadians to get where they need to go. This is how we get to net zero by 2050,” said Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, in a statement.
“Investing in green infrastructure, like EV charging stations across Durham Region, is an effective way to encourage the wide adoption of zero-emission vehicles and reduce pollution. We are committed to supporting innovative projects that provide Canadians with greater access to cleaner travel options where they live, work and play,” added Ryan Turnbull Member of Parliament, Whitby.
Earlier this week, the Canadian government also announced new EV chargers would also be coming to Quebec and New Brunswick as well.
