With gas prices topping $2L in many provinces, Canadians are switching to EVs in record numbers to save money on fuel. But just how affordable and available are electric cars?

Register to hear from Daniel Breton, President of Electric Mobility Canada and Joanna Kyriazis, Program Manager at Clean Energy Canada.

Joanna and Daniel will walk us through the true costs of owning an EV, how Canadians can save tens of thousands of dollars by going electric, and why we need a national ZEV mandate to ensure EV supply can keep up with demand and ensure that Canadians across the country can access a broad range of electric makes and models.
