EMC Chapters and Groups

Regional Chapters

Staying well informed and having access to other EV stakeholders can be difficult. This is why EMC has organized regional chapters for its members.

Since 2012, EMC has set up regional meetings for our members in Quebec, Ontario, British-Columbia and now in Nova Scotia. Those meetings allow our members to network with other EV colleagues from various sectors, to discuss local EV issues, and to become aware of the latest developments regarding the ever changing world of the electrification of transportation.

Our meetings are usually held 2 or 3 times a year in each of the three provinces in a metropolitan area and may take the form of a round table on a specific matter, a casual networking cocktail, a meeting focusing on the latest developments in the field. Don’t miss the next regional chapter meeting in your area!

EMC Sector Groups

These groups allow EMC members to connect with other members sharing common areas of interest so they can exchange information, explore new opportunities, identify issues that need advocacy, and form coalitions to move initiatives forward. The sector groups meet regularly via conference calls, webinars or face-to-face meetings.

To learn more about EMC Sector Groups, please contact Marie-Andrée Emond at m.a.emond@emc-mec.ca.

"The EMC Quebec quarterly meetings allow members to meet with dynamic EV stakeholders. We, academics, usually do not have access to such key leaders. Thanks to these quarterly meetings, I was able to build a project in partnership with an important EV industry in Quebec."
