Reducing emissions from the transportation sector is critical to Canada achieving its climate targets. That’s why the Government of Canada is making it easier for Canadians to purchase and drive electric vehicles (EVs) across the country.

Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources, announced an investment of over $1.2 million to Nova Scotia’s Clean Foundation to help support the deployment and installation of up to 250 Level-2 EV chargers throughout the province.

Funding for the project is provided through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP). Clean Foundation will select recipients through a transparent process, based on demand. EV chargers will be installed in public places, multi-unit residential buildings, on streets, at workplaces or facilities for servicing light-duty vehicle fleets by spring 2023.

Since 2015, Canada has invested a historic $1 billion to make EVs more affordable and accessible for Canadians. These investments are supporting the establishment of a coast-to-coast network of fast chargers, installing chargers in local areas where Canadians live, work and play, and providing rebates of up to $5,000 to help more Canadians buy EVs.

These investments support Canada’s mandatory target of ensuring all passenger vehicles sold in Canada are zero emission by 2035 and are critical to achieving Canada’s ambitious climate change goals and building a cleaner, healthier future for all Canadians.
