ZEV Related Policies
Under the new Electric Vehicle Availability Standard, auto manufacturers and importers must meet annual ZEV targets for light-duty sales of 20% by 2026, 60% by 2030 and 100% by 2035.

Charging Infrastructure Policies
The Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP), a $680 million fund running through 2027, aims to accelerate the deployment of charging and refueling stations in Canada. It supports various infrastructure streams, including public, on-street, multi-unit residential buildings, workplaces, and vehicle fleets. In September 2022, the Canada Infrastructure Bank announced $500 million in funding for large-scale ZEV charging and refueling infrastructure. Canada invested in additional 50,000 charging stations, making a total of over 85,000 federally funded stations by 2027.

Vehicle Incentives
Additional $1.7 billion is earmarked for the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) Program until March 2025. The iZEV program offers up to $5,000 for buying or leasing a BEV and FCEV, and up to $2,500 for shorter-range PHEVs. Eligible vehicles have MSRP of $65,000 and $70,000 for passenger cars and large format personal vehicles like trucks and SUVs, respectively.
