Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (EVAFIDI) 🇨🇦

The Government of Canada is investing in a coast-to-coast network of fast-charging stations for EVs along the national highway systems.

EVAFIDI ended in 2020

The Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (EVAFIDI) offered repayable contributions to support the construction of a coast-to-coast EV fast-charging network in Canada. The program was administered by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). It was launched in 2016 and the last round of applications closed in July 2020.

NRCan is continuing to distribute new funding for EV chargers through another initiative, the Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).

Learn more about the past results of EVAFIDI on NRCan's official webpage.

Succesful applicants for Phase 1 and Phase 2 of EVAFIDI have cumulatively received over $68 million in funding from Natural Resources Canada.
