    It's either 820 km or 880 km from the Drummondville supercharger to Moncton, depending on whether you go through Maine or not. Are there enough places to charge? Yes. Are there enough to do it in a reasonable time? Not really. Unless the Riviere-du-Loup supercharger is completed (highly unlikely), you're looking at at least one overnight between the two places, plus another 4-6 hours of charging somewhere along the way.

    Don't forget to check out the Sun Country Highway website. Unfortunately your only options are level 2 chargers.

    I am making the trip down to N.S. from Ottawa in the second half of June.  Hoping to get as far as Fredericton to stay overnight at a hotel with charging.  If I cannot make it that far either Edmunston on the shorter end or Grand Falls in between have hotels with chargers (at least according to Plugshare).  But certainly as stated above, you will need to stay in a hotel with charging on the way ... Anywhere from Riviere du Loup to Fredericton depending on how far you get.   Would highly recommend Doug_G's blog on this site on long distance tripping.

    From Orillia, it's 1,584 km to Moncton, so many people would be stopping overnight even if the route were blanketed by Superchargers. I agree that you can't bank on the R-D-L Supercharger being open by then, but there will be CHAdeMO in Quebec City and La Pocatière by then. One possibility would be day one Orillia to Edmonston, NB. 1100 km. Overnight charge, then 500 km day two Edmonston to Moncton with a one-two hour recharge during lunch in Fredericton.

    I'm hoping to drive the Cabot Trail in early July. The trip will be tricky but we won't be in a hurry. It should be doable.

    Where will you charge when you are on CBI? Ingonish and Cheticamp? They are the only two listed on Plugshare on the Western half of the island.

    Richard, I drove out there two years ago...Sun Country had a new 100 amp charge station at a Tim Horton's just outside of Moncton (wasn't installed when I was passing through), and the Delta Hotel (Moncton) had a 90 amp charge station which worked fine...nice restaurant there as well...
