Meanwhile, in Ontario… 2023

We return to our series that compares what is happening to decarbonize the economy elsewhere with the situation in Ontario.

BC offers a $4000 rebate for the purchase of electric vehicles (EVs):

Cars, station wagons, mini-vans, SUVs, small and standard pickup trucks and passenger vans. This is in addition to the $5000 federal rebate. 

Meanwhile, in Ontario… 

In 2018, Doug Ford’s government cancelled the electric vehicle (EV) rebate program brought in by the previous Liberal government and recently said he prefers “the market dictates” route, rather than providing a subsidy to individual Ontarians to help them transition to an EV.
