- In order to encourage the adoption of ZEVs by Canadians and Canadian businesses, the Government of Canada launched the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) Program in May 2019. There are many different makes and models of eligible zero-emission vehicles for purchase or lease that provide consumers with iZEV Program incentives of up to $5,000.
- Natural Resources Canada offers the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program. NRCAN has granted over $40M to 22 Third-Party Delivery Organizations to distribute a component of the ZEVIP funding to Ultimate Recipients (applicants) to install electric vehicle charging infrastructure projects in public places, on-street, in multi-unit residential buildings, at workplaces or for light-duty vehicle fleets. Applicants to these organizations may be able to receive up to $5,000 per Level 2 port and/or up to $75,000 per DCFC station, with a max of $100,000 per applicant. The 22 organizations that have been granted funding can be found HERE.
