More Electric Vehicle Charging Stations On The Way

Green Investment Fund Reducing Greenhouse Gas Pollution, Growing Ontario’s Economy

Ottawa - The province is putting its new Climate Change Strategy into action by investing $20 million this year from the Ontario Green Investment Fund to build more public charging stations for electric vehicles.

Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Environment and Climate Change Glen Murray made the announcement while taking part in the United Nations’ 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) on climate change in Paris, France.

Through the $20 million grant program, the province is seeking public and private sector partners to create a network of fast-charging electric vehicle stations in cities, along highways and at workplaces, apartments, condominiums and public places across Ontario. Full program details will be available later this month.

A shift to low- and zero-emission vehicles is vital to the fight against climate change and achieving Ontario’s greenhouse gas pollution reduction target of 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050.

Ontario’s new $325 million Green Investment Fund commits money for projects that fight climate change. These investments are part of the government’s plan for securing a healthy, clean and prosperous low-carbon future by transforming the way we live, move, work and adapt to our environment while ensuring strong, sustainable communities.

Fighting climate change while supporting growth, efficiency and productivity is part of the government’s plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people’s talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
