Government of Canada to develop a national Zero-Emissions Vehicle Strategy by 2018.

The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport and the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, announced that the Government of Canada is developing a national strategy to increase the number of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVS) on Canadian roads by 2018.

To advance the strategy, a national Advisory Group has been established to contribute to developing options for addressing the key barriers for greater deployment of these technologies in five areas: vehicle supply, cost and benefits of ownership, infrastructure readiness, public awareness, and clean growth and clean jobs.

“Developing a national strategy on zero-emission vehicles is one more way Canada can lead the global transition to the low-carbon economy while creating good jobs and giving Canadians more choices the next time they need to buy a vehicle,” said Jim Carr, Minister of Natural Resources.
