Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change has announced that 28 of the most popular Parks Canada places now have Tesla donated electric vehicle charging stations available for visitors to use.

Tesla donated Level 2 charging stations (half Tesla, half J-1772) for visitor use in Parks Canada places. These destination charging station locations allow vehicles to reach full charge in 4-6 hours.


To date, 172 electric vehicle charging stations have been installed in 14 national parks, 12 national historic sites, one national marine conservation area and in Rouge National Urban Park. For each location where this new electric vehicle charging service is available, half of the charging stations are Tesla and half are J-1772 and are included free of charge with entry fees (where applicable). Several Parks Canada places will have more than one area where visitors can charge their electric vehicles.

As per the news release, Parks Canada expects charging stations donated by Tesla will be available to visitors at 38 Parks Canada places by autumn 2020.
