Toronto, Ontario –- February 12, 2019 –- Vancouver will be receiving six new electric vehicle charging stations, as apart of Canada’s initiative towards a low-carbon future. 

Through the Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, the Government of Canada is investing $182.5 million to support the establishment of coast-to-coast charging stations for electric vehicles.

Last week, Pamela Goldsmith-Jones, member of Parliament for West Vancouver–Sunshine Coast–Sea to Sky Country, announced on behalf of Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Hon. Amarjeet Sohi, a $300,000 investment to build six electric vehicle fast chargers in Vancouver, scheduled to open in early 2020.

“Electric vehicles are an important part of Canada’s clean energy future. Our government is working with municipal and provincial governments to support green infrastructure projects to encourage widespread adoption. Together, we are building Canada’s clean tech economy,” said Goldsmith-Jones.

These latest fast chargers, built by the City of Vancouver, were partially funded through the Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (EVAFIDI).  The Government of British Columbia also contributed $150,000 through its Clean Energy Vehicle Public Fast Charging Program.

Two fast chargers will be located at National Avenue, two at West 12th Street and two more at Pacific Boulevard.
