To expand and promote Canada’s EV charging infrastructure, the Government of Canada has partnered with Natural Resources Canada to execute the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).
ZEVIP is a 5-year $280 million program ending in 2024. Its objective is to break down barriers associated with EV adoption by increasing the availability of charging stations where Canadians live, work and play. Program funding is released in phases for a limited number of projects.
To learn more about the various funding phases and when they will be released, talk to our EV experts or visit Natural Resources Canada.
Total funding must be less than $100,000 per application. The maximum funding per type of charger is as follows:
|Type of charging station||Output||Available Funding||Approximate Charge Time|
|Level 2 – (208 / 240 V) charging stations||3.3kW to 19.2kW||Up to 50% to a maximum of $5,000 per connector||4-10 hours|
|Level 3 – Fast charging stations||20kW to 49kW||Up to 50% to a maximum of $15,000 per charger||Under 30 minutes|
|Level 3 – Faster charging stations||50kW to 99Kw||Up to 50% to a maximum of $50,000 per charger|
|Level 3 – Fastest charging stations||100 kW and above||Up to 50% to a maximum of $75,000 per charger|
*Please note: Only Level 2 or Level 3 type charging stations are eligible for the ZEVIP program.
Buildings with a common entrance having a minimum of 3 dwelling units.
Companies that own or lease light-duty fleets of vehicles for business activities such as taxis or medium and heavy-duty vehicles like delivery trucks.
Workplaces where chargers are installed in locations primarily used by employees.
Parking areas intended for public use, such as service stations, retail, restaurants, arenas, libraries, medical offices, park and ride, etc.
On-street or curbside charging for public use.
Envari can support the entirety of the application process to ensure eligibility and maximize your funding.
Envari will conduct an on-site system and layout audit to assess current electrical infrastructure, electrical capacity, parking configuration, user preferences/habits, installation effort, and overall cost.
Envari is a product-agnostic provider and can offer EV charging stations from a variety of manufacturers. We will guide you through all options for an ideal EV infrastructure design that fits your budget.
And, of course, continued maintenance and ongoing support is available.
