The Accelerate Alliance welcomes the focus on incentivizing the purchase of light, medium and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles (ZEV), as well as continued investment in charging infrastructure in the federal government’s 2030 Emissions Reductions Plan. These are important steps to growing ZEV adoption in Canada and are aligned with policies in the U.S., which will drive greater ZEV demand across North America.
We look forward to continuing to work with government, industry, the investment community and other stakeholders to ensure Canada plays a pivotal role in meeting this demand. Together we can leverage Canada’s competitive advantages in critical minerals, cleantech, parts manufacturing, vehicle assembly, software, and, most importantly, human capital. This will result in a robust and connected Canadian ZEV ecosystem that will add supply to the North American market and create activity across multiple sectors of the economy and in every region of the country.
