Charged For Change
Bringing EV charging infrastructure
to your community
Making the collective transition to electric vehicles (EV) is an important component of the global strategy to fight climate change. However, the infrastructure required to support this change can be cost prohibitive for many communities. Aviva Canada has worked with Earth Day Canada to create Charged for Change, a program that aims to facilitate the transition to electric mobility in underserved communities across Canada.
Over 3 years, with the support of Earth Day Canada, Aviva will provide $3 million in funding to support the installation of public electric vehicle charging stations in communities across Canada who are looking to increase charging opportunities locally. This investment will help remove a key barrier these communities face in getting EV infrastructure up and running, which proves to be a deciding factor for Canadians considering the purchase of an EV.
