Electric Vehicle Strategy 
North Cowichan’s Electric Vehicle Strategy will commence in 2023, to guide the expansion of the charging network and accelerate the adoption of EVs. The Strategy is intended to support the Municipality’s Climate Action and Energy Plan’s goal of “100% of new vehicle sales are electric by 2030”.
