Electric Mobility Canada and Electro-Federation Canada Join Forces to Fight Climate Change and Grow the Cleantech Economy


June 10, 2021

Electric Mobility Canada (EMC) and Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) have announced a new partnership to support Canada’s climate plan. Working together to fight climate change and grow the cleantech economy will be valuable in promoting the adoption of e-mobility and its required infrastructure in Canada. Through this partnership, EFC and EMC commit to the following:

  1.  Collaborate to encourage change. Sharing information on issues and activities to support the adoption of zero-emission vehicles with EFC’s Electric Vehicle Systems Business Section.
  2.  Advocate for change. Identifying gaps and awareness on subjects relating to legislative policy and product standards and regulations as well as proposing appropriate standards development strategies.
  3.  Educate to change. Providing access to pertinent publications, training materials, and other relevant resources relating to e-mobility and the infrastructure requirements.

“Electric vehicles (EVs) are experiencing significant growth in Canada and worldwide, largely driven by the important environmental benefit but also due to factors related to product superiority and market opportunity,” said Carol McGlogan, President and CEO of EFC. “Our partnership with Electric Mobility Canada allows EFC to have a seat at the table and be involved in influencing Electric mobility infrastructures so our members can continue to lead the design, manufacturing, supply, and servicing of these new systems for the EV Market.”

“As electric mobility is evolving at a very fast pace, it is essential that all actors involved in this ecosystem collaborate in a meaningful and productive way regarding technology adoption, up-to-date regulation, and EV education. This new EFC-EMC partnership will help our respective members thrive and create quality Canadian jobs while fighting climate change and air pollution” said Daniel Breton, President, and CEO of EMC.

“EVs offer a number of performance advantages over internal combustion engine vehicles, which help reduce dependency on fossil fuels, and thus help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,” said Gurvinder Chopra, VP of Standards and Regulations for EFC. “Our partnership with Electric Mobility Canada comes at an important time when EFC’s growing Electric Vehicle Systems Business Section is poised for the future of e-mobility and infrastructure in Canada, gathering support for standardization of the EV Supply Equipment.”
