Canada’s Zero Emissions Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP) Accepting New Applications Spring 2023

March 8, 2023

Canada Zero Emissions Infrastructure Program

The Government of Canada (through Natural Resources Canada) is looking to make EV charging infrastructure (like the FLO series of EV chargers) more affordable and accessible for Canadians. What does this mean for you?

Every year since 2019 there have been rounds of RFP’s with targeted outcomes. Natural Resources Canada is looking for projects that involve installing EV charging infrastructure for the following use cases:

  • Public Places
  • On-Street
  • Multi-Unit Residential Buildings
  • Workplaces
  • Commercial and Public Vehicle Fleets

The 2022 round of RFP’s is being decided on shortly, and the next round of RFP’s is about to open. 

For the current round, Natural Resources Canada will contribute up to 50% of Total Project Costs up to a maximum of $5,000,000 per project, and up to $2,000,000 per project for Delivery Organizations. 

Proposals must include: 
  • A minimum of 2 fast chargers of 50kW and above OR 
  • If installing less than two fast chargers of 50kW and above, a minimum of 20 chargers of all charging levels. 

Eligible recipients of funding include:

Direct Recipient Delivery Organization
