Ontario Launches ONroute Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Ontario is leveraging our Clean Energy Advantage by advancing the electrification of our transportation system.

Today, we’re launching EV fast chargers at six ONroute locations, as part of the government’s historic expansion of Ontario’s Electric Vehicle infrastructure.

This year alone, Ontario will open charging stations at 20 of the province’s ONroute locations, serving drivers along our busiest highways.

We’re taking further steps to boost EV adoption. Earlier this month, Minister Smith asked the Ontario Energy Board to examine a new ultra-low overnight electricity rate. This could encourage EV adoption, by reducing overnight charging costs, when province-wide electricity demand is lower.

By enhancing convenience and choice, we’re making EV adoption a more realistic option for more Ontario families, while boosting our world-class auto sector and reducing emissions.
