An investment of $100,000 in the Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology will be made to install 20 EV chargers on its Sudbury Campus.
SUDBURY — Funded through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP), a $100,000 investment in the Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology will be made to install 20 EV chargers on its Sudbury Campus.
“Through their use in electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging infrastructure, critical minerals play an important role in achieving Canada’s climate targets and reducing emissions in the transportation sector. Today’s announcement is another example of how we are supporting Sudbury’s ongoing leadership in the global transformation to net zero,” said Viviane Lapointe, Member of Parliament for Sudbury.
Cambrian College also contributed over $247,000 toward this project.
“This investment further builds on Cambrian College’s rise as an EV leader through its research and development facilities where important work is being done,” said Marc G. Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Official Languages. “It is vital that we continue to make EVs more affordable and chargers more accessible for Canadians. This funding shows that Cambrian College is both an innovator in the EV space and an institution that wants to make EVs more accessible to people in Nickel Belt-Greater Sudbury. Our government is committed to investing in clean technology to help meet our emission reduction targets, grow the economy and create green jobs for the future.”
