Starting on April 1, 2018, the Government of Canada has allocated $30 million over four years to support demonstrations of next-generation and innovative electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure projects, and your Expression of Interest (EOI) will allow for the submission of additional project concepts in this fast-evolving sector.

NRCan reserves the right to alter the currently envisaged process, funding amounts, and deadlines, or to cancel the entire application process at its sole discretion. Any changes will be communicated to registered applicants via e-mail.


To be eligible to receive funding under this program, you must be a Canadian organization; individuals and foreign entities are ineligible. All details are outlined in the EOI Applicants’ Guide.


The Program’s repayable contribution is expected to be in the range of $1 million to $5 million per project, subject to change.
