The Workplace Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Program (WEVCIP) is part of Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan. It aims to increase EV adoption in Ontario by making it easier for EV owners to access charging while at work or the office.
The WEVCIP is a significant rebate program open to any employer or commercial building manager in Ontario with at least 10 employees or workplace tenants.
This incentive provides 80% of the initial cost to deploy Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations that will be used by your employees, up to $7,500 per parking space. This includes the purchase and installation of a charging station, as well as any necessary site preparation and finishing costs (electrical upgrades, signs, parking space painting, etc.).
Your company is eligible to receive rebates for at least two EV charging stations. For bigger parking areas, your company is eligible for a number of rebates equal to 4% of total employee parking spaces per location.
Any company in Ontario with a CRA business number and at least 10 full-time employees is eligible to apply. You must own or have control over the parking spaces you wish to equip with charging stations. Parking spaces that can be used by customers or the public are still eligible, but are subject to certain restrictions, as the focus of this program is enabling charging for employees.
