Workplace Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Program
Applications must be submitted through Grants Ontario:
As part of the Climate Change Action Plan, the government is taking action to increase the number of electric vehicle (EV) charging opportunities in Ontario in an effort to accelerate the electrification of transportation. The Workplace Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Program (Program or WEVCIP) will support employers and commercial building owners and managers that wish to provide level 2 EV charging stations for their employees or workplace tenants by providing 80 per cent of the initial costs, up to $7,500 per approved charging space, subject to meeting eligibility and technical requirements.
The Program will begin accepting applications on January 16, 2018. Applications will be reviewed and processed in the order they are received, until the funding allocation for the Program is exhausted. You will find the WEVCIP Program Guide at:
