Advancing the future of zero-emission vehicles
Making zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs)
more affordable and accessible for Canadians
We continue to make zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), like EVs, more affordable and chargers more accessible for Canadians. We are supporting the deployment of charging infrastructure where it is most needed, along highways and where Canadians live, work and play. Together with federal purchase rebates, we are growing public confidence and enabling more Canadians to make the switch.

Helping Canadians drive cleaner
Funding ZEV infrastructure
We are supporting the installation of infrastructure that will help Canadians feel more confident to make the switch to Zero-emission vehicles putting more Canadians in the driver’s seat and on the road to a net-zero future.
Supporting the jump to a ZEV
We want to support your transition to ZEVs!
We’re making it easier for Canadians to adopt zero-emission vehicles, reduce their GHG emissions and save. As of May 2022, over 150,000 Canadians and Canadian businesses have benefited from the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles program, helping to reduce up to 519,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases per year, or 6.2 million tonnes over the lifetime of these vehicles. This is equivalent to powering over 1.4 million homes for one year.
Leading by example
We are greening our government fleets!
We want to make the government’s light-duty fleet exclusively ZEVs by 2030. That means we’re helping other federal fleets plan for adopting zero-emission and low-carbon vehicles so that they can reduce on-road greenhouse gas emissions.
