Canada Invests in New Brunswick's Electric Vehicle Network
"Our government is committed to greening Canadians' transportation choices by building the infrastructure needed to drive electric and alternative fuel vehicles. Electric vehicles are an essential part of Canada's clean energy future, and we will continue to support projects like this that encourage their widespread adoption."
Member of Parliament for New Brunswick Southwest
"NB Power is proud to help put in place the infrastructure needed to support the adoption of electric vehicles in our province. Since the launch of our public charging network for electric vehicles in 2017, we have made significant progress in expanding the network to cover the entire province and make New Brunswick the first fully connected province in Canada for electric vehicles."
President and CEO, NB Power
Through the Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, our government is investing $182.5 million to support the establishment of a coast-to-coast charging network for electric vehicles, natural gas stations along key freight corridors and stations for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles in metropolitan centres. This investment also includes support for the demonstration of next-generation charging technologies, as well as the development of binational (Canada and the United States) codes and standards for low-carbon vehicles and infrastructure.
Through the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan, our government is investing more than $180 billion over 12 years in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes and Canada's rural and northern communities.
