A new report from Electric Mobility Canada answers the question: As Canadians pay at the pump, which provinces make it easiest to go electric?
Electric Mobility Canada (EMC), with the support of Dunsky Energy + Climate Advisors, released a Scorecard comparing how Canadian provinces and territories are doing at supporting consumers in their transition to electric vehicles (EVs).
The Scorecard shows that exciting action is underway, with EVs becoming the clear choice for consumers and businesses in many parts of the country. At the same time, provinces and territories still have much work ahead to meet demand and provide affordable access to electric vehicles.
The Scorecard measures progress based on policies and programs put in place to ensure EV supply, support adoption, build charging infrastructure, and develop the workforce. Provinces and territories are then grouped under the categories of Canadian Leaders, Building Momentum and Getting Started.
The Canada EV Scorecard tracks actions taken or already in place in the 2021–22 fiscal year. Funding for the Scorecard was also provided by the Trottier Family Foundation, the Ivey Foundation and the Transition Accelerator. EMC intends to update and release the Scorecard regularly, acting as a consistent reference point for progress and policy inspiration in the transition to EVs.
