What is Accelerate?
The Accelerate Alliance, a 5-year national initiative establishing a forum to bring together key players from industry, labour unions, government, NGOs, academia to organize and align themselves on the policies, programs and support needed to accelerate the development of a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) supply chain in Canada.
Supporting over 500,000 direct and indirect jobs, Canada’s automobile sector is a pillar of our national economy. With the rapid transformation to zero emissions vehicles underway, now is the time for Canada to build on this strength while leveraging the country’s rich resources and technology talent to become a global ZEV powerhouse.

Ensuring that Canada capitalizes on this once-in-a-generation opportunity requires a clear roadmap for the industry, followed by a series of advocacy, partnership, and capacity building initiatives. Working with our founding members, Accelerate has identified key priority action areas that will advance its mission.
