Natural Resources Canada announced its next tranche of federal investments in Ontario.
The newest investment will see nearly $15 million for the installation of greater than 2,350 chargers across Ontario. 2,100 of the chargers shall be within the Greater Toronto Area.
Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson had this to say:
We’re making electric vehicles cheaper and charging more accessible where Canadians live, work and play. Investing in additional EV chargers, just like the ones announced today across the Greater Toronto Area, will put more Canadians in the motive force’s seat on the road to a net-zero future and help achieve our climate goals.
The funding will provide 32 organizations, including multi-resident buildings, private firms, utilities and municipalities, with funds to cover the price of putting in EV chargers.
This includes the City of Toronto, YMCA, City of Brampton and others. For the YMCA, the chargers shall be situated across the Greater Toronto Area and likewise at YMCA Camp Pine Crest in Muskoka. The precise locations for chargers shall be confirmed in the approaching months.
All of the funding got here through the Federal Government’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program.
