Electric Vehicle Charging Programs

Putting communities on the map for electric vehicle drivers.

The Electric Vehicles Charging Program was an unprecedented opportunity to prepare for the rapid increase in electric vehicle (EV) sales. Together, Alberta municipalities are electrifying local tourism, future-proofing municipal fleets, and saving on fuel costs by installing EV chargers.

This program is now closed.

What can a charging station bring your community?

Electrify local tourism and attract new customers: With growing consumer demand for electric vehicles, forward-thinking municipalities and businesses are looking for ways to welcome EV drivers. Adding a fast charging station to the map will attract electric vehicle owners to shop, eat and stay in your community.

Future-proof your fleet: Vehicle fleets will be increasingly reliant on EVs as Canada moves toward 100% zero-emission vehicle sales by 2035. Get your municipal or commercial vehicle fleet ready for an electric future with a grant-funded EV charging station.

Demonstrate your commitment to future growth: Around 12% of Canada’s climate pollution comes from cars and trucks burning fossil fuels. Switching to electric vehicles demonstrates your commitment to cleaner skies and a healthier climate.
