ZEVIP Funding Incentive

To expand and promote Canada’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is funding projects through the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).

ZEVIP is a multi-year program ending in 2027. Its objective is to break down barriers associated with electric vehicle adoption by increasing the availability of charging stations where Canadians live, work and play.

To learn more about the various funding phases and when they will be released, talk to our EV experts or visit Natural Resources Canada.
