Urge the Canadian Government to offer incentives for purchasing electric vehicles (EV)

Electric Vehicles (EV) are becoming more affordable with the introduction of the Tesla Model 3, Chevy Bolt, Ford Focus Electric and Nissan Leaf.
The United States Government currently offers up to $7,500 USD income tax credit which is available to all residents. Many states also offer non-cash incentives, such as carpool lane access and free municipal parking.
Japan, India, China, Australia and 22 countries in Europe provide a range of incentives including:
- automobile tax reductions
- personal income tax deduction
- purchase subsidies/rebates
- road tax exemptions
- free charging outlets
In Canada, incentives are only available at a provincial level in British Columbia and Quebec. Canadians living in other provinces do not have access to incentives of any kind.
EV's not only reduce CO2 and other tailpipe pollutants, but they are significantly quieter than conventional internal combustion engine automobiles. By choosing to drive an EV, you would be helping in the reduction of local air pollution, total greenhouse gas and other emissions.
To make these vehicles even more affordable to every Canadian, we urge the Canadian Government to provide tax rebates and other incentives for those that choose to purchase zero emission vehicles. Please sign and share this petition to make our voices heard.
