Fast facts

Reduces transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions
Increases access to public charging infrastructure
Full deployment to be completed within four years

We are collaborating with FLO, a leading North American electric vehicle (EV) charging network operator and provider, to enable the installation of approximately 2,000 public fast charging ports. FLO’s expanded network will be installed within four years at approximately 400 sites across Canada, including in areas currently underserved by EV chargers.

FLO will collaborate with site hosts to install the chargers along qualifying transportation corridors and in urban and suburban communities with populations greater than 20,000.

Benefits of CIB’s Involvement

An investment under the Charging and Hydrogen Refuelling Infrastructure (CHRI) Initiative addresses the barriers to large-scale private sector investment in this sector, including uncertainty in the rate and pace EV adoption.

By accelerating and expanding the private sector’s rollout of charging infrastructure, the partnership accelerates EV adoption and reduces transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions.

With about 2,000 universal public fast charging ports* currently in Canada, this extraordinary partnership comes close to almost doubling the number of public DCFCs across the country. We are pleased to have a lending partner like the CIB and look forward to working together to accelerate the expansion of fast and reliable EV charging, which is critical to Canadian EV adoption.

Louis Tremblay, President and CEO
Minister of Natural Resources

We’re making electric vehicles more affordable and charging more accessible where Canadians live, work and play. Investing in more EV chargers, like the ones announced today across Canada, will put more Canadians in the driver’s seat on the road to a net-zero future and help achieve our climate goals.
