How we support electric vehicles
Electric vehicles use an electric power motor instead of a traditional internal combustion engine. They use far less energy per kilometer, especially in urban driving, and help you save money on fuel. Less energy to go the same distance and less money to do the same adds up to sustainable driving. This makes electric vehicles an important step towards sustainable driving.
The City supports going electric in a number of ways. We are the first Canadian city to require all new houses and developments to provide charging outlets for electric vehicles. And we tested out one of the first highway capable electric vehicles, which is now part of the fleet used by our staff.
Parking your electric vehicle
We are working with our community centres and with private parking lots to provide charging outlets to drivers. We update the map of Electric vehicle charging stations below, as new stations are added to the system.
