Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative

Value

$5,000,000

Description

The Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (the Program) offers repayable contributions to support the construction of an electric vehicle (EV) fast charging, coast-to-coast network. For projects that include level 2 EV connectors or lower powered fast-chargers as a supplementary charging option at the same site, funding may also be available through the Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program. The Program funding also supports natural gas infrastructure along key freight corridors and hydrogen infrastructure in metropolitan centres.

The Canadian federal government is trying to build the electric battery infrastructure to enable wide distribution of electric cars. If your business is investing in installing electric charge station, you should contact the grant agency about this program.

Before you ever speak to a grant agency, you should make a great impression. You can learn about winning grant agencies in this book and by reading this other blog post.
