Thunder Bay CEDC relaunches Plug-in Thunder Bay

April 24, 2023 – The Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission (CEDC) is relaunching the Plug-in Thunder Bay program. The objective of the program is to enhance charging and refueling stations in Canada, one of the critical barriers to EV adoption, by increasing the availability of localized charging and hydrogen refueling opportunities where Canadians live, work, and play.

The funding will be distributed locally by the CEDC and is supported by the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).

“Since the program launch in late 2021 there has been funding support for the instalment of 44 electric vehicle chargers in the Thunder Bay,” says Jamie Taylor, CEO Thunder Bay CEDC. “We are excited to continue with the program as it is a great way to bring more electric vehicle infrastructure to our community and encourage the adoption of lower-carbon transportation methods. With the Plug-In program we are furthering our goal of strengthening infrastructure needs in our community.” 

The funding program is now open for applications and will remain open until the funds are committed. Thunder Bay companies, institutions, entrepreneurs, and property owners are encouraged to apply to receive up to a 50% contribution towards purchasing and installing Level 2 chargers or fast chargers. The CEDC will support electric vehicle charging infrastructure projects in public places, on-street, workplaces, multi-unit residential buildings and for light-duty vehicle fleets.
