Most municipalities within Metro Vancouver have adopted policies related to EV charging stalls for new residential development. A few municipalities have adopted similar policies for non-residential development (commercial, industrial and institutional).


NAIOP Vancouver has compiled a brief summary of those municipalities with EV parking requirements for non-residential uses. We invite our members to review this list and advise if they are aware of any municipalities currently working on similar policies.


NAIOP Vancouver is fully supportive of such programs and wants to ensure municipalities and their staff have accurate information including construction and operating costs, prior to adopting these policies.
