Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative - How to apply


The 2020 Request for Proposals of the Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative is now closed.

**Temporary Measure - Extended Project Completion**

As the second wave of COVID-19 continues to cause supply chain disruptions and operational restrictions, the Program is now allowing up to an additional 12 months to complete projects. As a result, proponents may have up to 30 months from the date of agreement signature for the completion of EV charging projects, and up to 36 months from the date of agreement signature for hydrogen and natural gas refuelling projects.

As the financial authority of the EVAFIDI program ends on March 31, 2022, a project's completion date may be extended, but eligible expenditures for reimbursement must be incurred before March 31, 2022.

Note that the completion date indicated in a signed contribution agreement takes precedence. Therefore, to avail yourself of this accommodation, you must contact your NRCan project officer or email, as an amendment to existing agreement will be required.
