    This is at least a start.
    Pricey though per charge and the ability to only have one car charge at a time is not good!
    But it's better than nothing!

    New fast-charge stations in Ontario

    Dear member,

    The Electric Circuit and the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario are pleased to announce the commissioning of new 400-V fast-charge stations in Kanata (2 DCFC), Nepean (1 DCFC), Rockland (1 DCFC), Kemptville (1 DCFC), Ottawa (1 DCFC) and Cornwall (1 DCFC).

    Fast-charging service using CHAdeMO and Combo connectors is available at these locations.

    See map:
    Terry Fox Park & Ride : 145 Roland Michener, Kanata
    Ben Franklin Place : 101 Centrepointe Dr., Nepean
    Saint-Hubert – Rockland : 9071 County Road 17, Rockland
    Kemptville : 825 Van Buren St., Kemptville
    Ottawa, Rue Clarence. – 141, rue Clarence., Ottawa
    Saint-Hubert – Cornwall : 705 avenue Brookdale, Cornwall

    Fast charging is offered at $17 per hour and billed by the minute. For example, a 20-minute fast-charge costs $5.61, and a 30-minute charge costs $8.50.

    We take this opportunity to clarify that one vehicle at a time can use the fast-charge station even if it has two types of connectors.

    Montreal is overflowing with L2. Interesting !
    The CCS FC is not cheap at ~ 10 - 15 cents a mile but if most charging is at home it seems fine.

    How much power from these chargers? 40kW?

    Many commercial charging networks are not cost effective when compared to home charging. You are paying for the entire station and convenience, though.

    They support 50kW but depending on demand charges, they are usually limited to this threshold. i.e. In QC, they run @ 42kW

    Great, keep it coming.

    Don't expect more than 40kW at any given time from this type of station. It's not a demand charge issue, it's a battery voltage issue (at least in Ontario, and in Quebec now that Hydro Quebec has created a new pricing tier for fast charging).

    All the Circuit Electric stations in Quebec offer the full 125A since April 1st. As previously mentioned, voltage limits in the car will cap you at 40 kW - 48 kW though. At least it's better than the 33 kW -41 kW of two months ago.

    I think this thread should be moved to Canadian CHAdeMO charging or New Ontario chargers.

    Because these machine's output are amperage constrained. 120/125A at most. If your battery voltage at whatever state of charge is only 300V, the most you'll get is 300A*120V = 36kW.

    I disagree about moving the thread. This is more than just charging. It's about the viability of a new charging infrastructure in Ontario whether it be Chademo, CCS, L3, L2 or what have you!

    That is why there is already an entire thread called "new Ontario chargers." It covers the entire EVCO program (of which these Electric Circuit units are a small part.)

    It's nice to see that Cornwall now has an L3 but I don't think it is going to see many Teslas since we are already well served with a SC which is free and faster, at least for us pre-2017 owners.

    And much cheaper for 2017+ owners: 26 cents a minute for tier 2, 13 cents a minute for tier 1. That works out to ~ 17 cents a kWh
