Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Deployment Guidelines

Establishing Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Guidelines is an essential first step in building a successful infrastructure within the Province of British Columbia (BC) and in Canada.

EV and PHEV have unique requirements that internal combustion vehicles do not. Although not intended to be an installation manual or as a replacement for approved codes and standards, these Guidelines provide the necessary information for understanding these requirements and the related governing authority references so that successful planning, design, permitting and construction will lead to successful adoption of EVs and PHEVs in British Columbia.
