Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program - How to apply


The Request for Proposals (RFP) focusing on public places, on-street, multi-unit residential buildings, workplaces and light-duty vehicle fleets is now open until June 22, 2021 (23:59 Eastern Daylight Time). NRCan will target having funding decisions by October 2021.

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 refuelling projects.

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.

Submit a single copy of the complete Application with all additional supporting documentation required by the program to fully assess the project. When an application has been submitted, a notification will be sent by the program acknowledging its receipt. This may take up to five business days.

Apply by email

The program prefers to receive your proposal in electronic format by email at The Applicant must submit a completed application form (including the Word and Excel documents) and the attestation page must be dated and signed by a duly authorized officer and scanned and sent as a PDF. Additional supporting documentation, saved as Word, Excel or PDF formats, must also accompany the application.

Note: the maximum size of email attachments to Natural Resources Canada is 10MB. If the submission exceeds the maximum, the applicant may forward their files in a series of emails with the same subject line. Natural Resources Canada is not responsible for the security of the files during transmission.
