Canada Announces 853 New EV Chargers are Coming at Cost of $32 Million



Canada announced 853 new electric vehicle chargers this week, part of a $32 million CAD investment, as part of #EVWeekinCanada, according to the federal government department, Natural Resources Canada.

The federal government says you can now drive coast-to-coast from Victoria, British Columbia, to St. John’s, Newfoundland in an EV.

Here’s what was announced this week…

“We’re giving Canadians the greener options they want to get to where they need to go. We’re building a coast-to-coast network of electric vehicle charging stations from St. John’s to Victoria, and raising ZEV awareness. This is how we get to net-zero by 2050,” said Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources, in a statement.

The government of Canada says its investments in charging infrastructure so far “will result in more than 17,000 new charging stations available to Canadians.”
