In 2016, the province of Ontario vowed to install 500 electric charging stations in 250 locations across its territory, to ensure that all electric vehicles can easily travel from Windsor to Ottawa, and from Toronto to North Bay. The main strategy is the following: to have fast charging stations every 60-80 km along Ontario’s major highways.
Also, it is now required that level 2 charging plugs be installed on all new residential and commercial buildings to ensure a charging infrastructure to EV drivers. This is considered as one of the key measures taken by the city to reduce harmful greenhouse emissions and encourage the EV adoption.
