The Canadian Electric Vehicle Dealership Awards Program is a joint initiative between Plug’n Drive and the Canadian Electricity Association. Five award categories recognize the leading dealerships and electricity companies promoting the adoption of EVs in Canada. Held on an annual basis, entries are evaluated by an external judging committee comprised of Canadian EV experts drawn from industry, non-profit organizations, government, and the media.

Plug’n Drive is a non-profit organization committed to accelerating the adoption of electric cars across Canada to maximize their environmental and economic benefits. To help drivers make the switch, Plug’n Drive is focused on three key programs: Education, Home and Public Charging Infrastructures and Research to support the electric vehicle industry.
