Manitobans will soon have more places to charge their electric vehicles, the province’s environment minister announced Thursday.

Kevin Klein said the province is spending $220,000 on green transportation projects, the bulk of which — around $150,000 — will go to Eco-West Canada toward installing seven new Level 3 electric charging stations in six Manitoba municipalities.


“Transitioning to electric vehicles and increasing access to transit will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support a low-carbon economy and ensure affordability for Manitobans,” Klein said in a statement.

An additional $70,000 in funding is earmarked for the Association of Manitoba Bilingual Municipalities to support rural transit initiatives.
