Subsidy for companies to install electric charging stations

Last updated February 28, 2024

Would you like to install electric charging stations in the parking lot of your company or private institution? You could get financial assistance of up to $100,000 to carry out your project, whether you are the owner or tenant of your building.



The program gives companies and private institutions located in the Montréal agglomeration the chance to get a subsidy to install electric charging stations for the use of their staff, customers and the public. It is possible for the same company or institution to submit several applications for different street addresses.


To be eligible, the company or institution must be:

  • A legal person governed by private or public law, a partnership, limited partnership or joint venture, or an association
  • Registered with the Registraire des entreprises
  • A tenant or owner of a non-residential building located in the Montréal agglomeration

Financial assistance

The subsidy covers 50 per cent of the cost of the project and must be less than $100,000.

Maximum amounts are: 

  • $5,000 per connector of a Level 2 charging station (provided that all connectors can be used at the same time and each vehicle has a parking space during charging)
  • $15,000 per 20kW to 49kW fast charging station
  • $50,000 per 50kW and 99kW fast charging station
  • $75,000 per 100kW+ fast charging station

Eligible expenses

  • Professional engineering, architectural, data collection or logistics services related to the implementation and evaluation of the project
  • IT equipment required for the implementation of the project
  • Electric charging stations
  • Costs of building, installing and commissioning the electric charging station as well as its power supply
  • Licensing and permit fees


The application deadline is July 31, 2025.

The project must be completed no later than September 30, 2025.

The subsidy will be paid once the project is completed and found to comply with the applicable technical requirements as well as the regulations.
