Ontario Boosting Electric Vehicle Charging AvailabilityPublished on December 01, 2021
Ontario is bringing electric vehicle (EV) fast chargers to every ONroute location in the province, making life easier for current and future EV drivers, while boosting our world-class auto sector and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Thanks to an agreement between the government, Ivy Charging Network, ONroute and Canadian Tire, ONroute locations along highways 401 and 400 will soon have at least two EV chargers each, with busier sites equipped with more.
Chargers at 17 ONroute locations will be open in time for summer 2022, with another three ONroute locations opening before the end of 2022. The final three locations will see construction of EV charging stations after planned renovations.
Harnessing Ontario’s clean energy advantage, by utilizing our 94 per cent emissions-free electricity supply, these chargers will further encourage the electrification of the transportation sector in Ontario by making EV charging more accessible.
With EV fast chargers installed at all ONroute locations, drivers will be able to travel the province with confidence that they can reach their destination, allowing more families to rediscover Ontario!
