NRCan Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Government Incentives


Notice: Please note that the ZEVIP and the EVAFIDI funding programs are now officially closed

Learn how you can deploy your EV charging infrastructure projects with NRCan's government incentives and funding programs, such as ZEVIP and EVAFIDI, and ABB's EV charging solutions.


What are NRCan's funding programs?

NRCan (Natural Resources Canada) is now open to receive financial applications for potential eligible projects under their government incentives/rebate programs, such as the Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (also known as ZEVIP (now closed)) and the Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (also known as EVAFIDI (now closed)).

The initiatives were established to support the development and fund zero-emission projects in Canada related to electric vehicle charging infrastructures through the adoption of cost-sharing contribution agreements. NRCan's ZEVIP incentive (closed) will cover up to 50% of the total project costs with a limit of up to $5,000,000 per project and the EVAFIDI incentive (closed) repays up to $5,000,000 per project.
