Provincial Advocacy

Electric Mobility Canada is regularly asked to influence and be part of discussions with governments and other stakeholders on policies to increase EV adoption.

For government electric vehicle related issues at the provincial level, Electric Mobility Canada will act in order to promote the acceleration of transport electrification all over Canada. Pleading for the introduction or renewal of EV incentives programs, taking position on particular EV related topic – such as the availability of EVs – and recommending actions to be taken by the governments are among the advocacy initiatives taken by EMC.

With the publication of its Roadmap for accelerating the deployment of electric vehicles, EMC has well covered the demand side recommendations.  The basic recommendations (raising awareness, increasing incentives – federal and/or provincial – and their predictability, increasing infrastructure (main effort on workplace charging and on DCFC), and other related measures such as HOV lanes) have demonstrated to have a major impact on EV adoption.

In April 2016, EMC’s supply and demand policy was completed, supported by a working group that conducted a review of major studies on different supply and demand policies in North America.
