44th Parliament of Canada
22 Nov 2021 - Present

The Canadian federal election of 2021 (officially the 44th Canadian general election) took place on September 20, 2021, and elected members of the House of Commons to Canada’s 44th Parliament. The Liberal Party, led by outgoing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, won 160 seats, forming a second consecutive minority government.

The Trudeau government had originally made 569 promises in its 2021 campaign platform and press releases. This number was reduced to 352 by an extensive, multi-coder process of sorting promises according to their degree of precision and importance to society. Unclear and less important promises were removed from the analysis.

« Un nouveau rapport du commissaire à l’environnement et au développement durable, Jerry V. DeMarco, révèle que le programme fédéral d’installation de bornes de recharge pour véhicules électriques est concentré dans un trop petit nombre de provinces et ne dispose d’aucune donnée montrant où se situent ses plus grandes lacunes. […] La bonne nouvelle, selon lui, c’est que Ressources naturelles Canada est en voie d’atteindre son objectif d’installer 33 500 points de recharge d’ici 2026. // En date de juillet dernier, le Programme d’infrastructure pour les véhicules à émission zéro avait approuvé et financé 33 887 points de recharge au pays. Environ 13 % d’entre eux étaient déjà opérationnels et les autres devraient l’être d’ici mars 2026, a déclaré M. DeMarco.  »

“To date, the government has supported installing almost 45,000 chargers across the country. // Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Canada’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, announced a $229,356 investment to Hypercharge to install 48 Level 2 EV chargers in 11 parking lots across Southern Ontario. Additional funding was provided by Hypercharge, bringing the total project value to $458,712”

« Le gouvernement fédéral a annoncé un financement de 500 000 dollars pour installer plus de bornes de recharge électriques à Ottawa dans les infrastructures d’Hydro Ottawa, des espaces publics de la Ville et les immeubles en copropriété.  »

« L’entreprise québécoise AddÉnergie, qui fait affaire sous le nom de Flo, a décroché auprès de la Banque de l’infrastructure du Canada (BIC) un prêt avantageux de 220 millions $ […] Avec cette aide financière, la plus importante jamais octroyée à Flo, l’entreprise de Québec pourra installer, d’ici 2027, 2000 ports de recharge rapides (connecteurs) dans environ 400 emplacements au Canada. […] L’investissement dans Flo s’inscrit dans le cadre d’un programme de 500 millions $ visant à financer des infrastructures de recharge de véhicules et de ravitaillement en hydrogène, que la BIC a lancé l’an dernier à la demande du gouvernement Trudeau.  »

“Today, the Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of National Defence, on behalf of the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources, announced a more than $53,000 investment in Geotab Inc. to install 11 Level 2 EV chargers in Oakville and nine in Kitchener, Ontario, which are now available for use. Geotab Inc. has also matched the funding amount, bringing the total project cost to over $106,000”

“The availability of public charging and refuelling infrastructure is a recognized barrier to ZEV adoption across Canada. As of August 2022, there were approximately 22,000 public chargers and six hydrogen refuelling stations installed in Canada, which is significantly less than the forecasted needs to support ZEV adoption”

In progress

“Budget 2022 announces that the Canada Infrastructure Bank will invest $500 million in large-scale urban and commercial ZEV charging and refuelling infrastructure. Funding will be sourced from the Canada Infrastructure Bank’s existing resources under its green infrastructure investment priority area”
