Don’t be shocked! Electric vehicle (EV) chargers are coming to a Petro-Canada near you

There’s a Karma Revero in my neighbourhood. I notice it because the other cars range from student beaters (I live close to the community college), a couple of giant, tricked-out F150s (seriously, do we need to have tires that big?), my vintage Saturn VUE (oh, Saturn, I miss you) and a mini van. The Revero definitely stands out (it’s hot!). I’m considering leaving a copy of this post on its windshield because there is some exciting info that its owner will be keen to hear: Petro-Canada is building a network of fast-charging EV stations across Canada!

Petro-Canada EV Fast Charging Station

Construction is slated to start this spring and when complete, the network will span more than 50 Petro-Canada locations along the Trans-Canada Highway from Nova Scotia to British Columbia.

Petro-Canada stations will offer DC fast chargers with both CHAdeMO and CCS/SAE connectors. The chargers can provide up to a 200 kilowatt charge – enough to provide an 80 per cent charge to most EVs – in less than 30 minutes. As we choose the sites we are making sure our guests will have amenities during their stay. So, you will be able to enjoy an A&W burger (maybe even the beyond meat burger!) and Wi-Fi while waiting. The chargers will support a broad selection of vehicles and are built for future electric vehicle capabilities. 

A test site is currently operational at 235 Steeles Ave. in Milton, ON. Check out this video of its construction and learn more about Petro-Canada’s EV network at

With more than 90,000 electric vehicles on the road in Canada and more than 4,000 EVs added each month, we know that this is an important step in meeting the current and future driving needs of Canadians. We plan to bring you more info about our EV network as progress continues. If you have any questions about our plans or about electric vehicles, leave them in the comments below – we’ll try to answer them in future posts!

This is great news! P-C was probably wondering why my Petro-points weren't accumulating like they used to. I'm looking forward to driving my Chevrolet Bolt up to one of these chargers when they arrive in BC!

Any Chance that these Chargers will be available in the City of Mississauga


At least some of the future PetroCanada EV charger locations are listed on the NRCAN website as being approved for government co-funding. Good to see plans for chargers in Canmore, Hwy 1 / 22 junction and Crossiron mills finishing a corridor from Calgary to the coast.

Didn't see anything for Ponoka or Innisfail though. These locations would be useful for shorter range EVs that might have some difficulty making it to Red Deer from Calgary or Edmonton, particularly in winter.
