EMC submission to Measurement Canada: Consultation on the oversight of L1 and L2 EV charging devices already in service


Being as charging infrastructure is essential to nurturing Canada’s electrified transportation ecosystem, EMC members welcomed the opportunity to participate in Measurement Canada’s consultation on pathways to enable energy-based billing on Level 1 and Level 2 electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) already deployed in the Canadian marketplace. Our submission, prepared collaboratively by multiple Government Relations Committee members, addresses concerns about the limited scope of the project (notably, the exclusion of DC fast chargers and of MURB settings), flexible billing options, compliance timelines submitted before defining type approval specifications, and complex terms and conditions for dispensation.

Zero Emission Vehicle Awareness Initiative – Calls for Proposal


Natural Resources Canada is now accepting proposals for the Zero Emission Vehicles Awareness Initiative (ZEVAI) for new and innovative projects that aim to address awareness and knowledge gaps among Canadians on light-duty ZEVs and ZEV technologies, including battery electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. This stream is also open to battery-powered micro-mobility solutions (i.e., small, lightweight vehicles operating at low speeds, including scooters, e-bikes, and cargo e-bikes). A separate call out for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles will follow at a later time.

Pollution Probe Releases Groundbreaking Report on the Canadian EV Charging Experience


The purpose of the project, which was supported by the Office of Consumer Affairs at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), was to assess the real-world charging experiences of Canadian EV owners. Through a lit review, expert interviews and a national survey completed by more than 1,600 EV owners from every province, Pollution Probe sought to identify the strengths and weaknesses of Canada’s charging network to help public and private sector decision-makers prioritize areas for near-term action.
