    Yes, I hope this helps get charging in place sooner. The actual process seems similar to before, except there are no delays or potential risks from having to seek approval of other owners. The biggest benefit seems that boards can not deny the application except on technical or safety grounds.

    What happens to all these plans if Doggie and Tania take over?

    The changes take effect May 1st. The election is June 7th. This specific change isn't costing the province anything, so there are no political points to be gained by rolling it back. The current rebates for EVs and charger installations are another story.

    Unfortunately it doesn't do anything to address the substantial costs to retrofit condo parking for EV charging.
    Just seems to be another desperate attempt by the Liberals before they get swept out. All fluff but no substance to the announcement.

    Well, to be fair, "all fluff and no substance" describes every announcement by any political party in Canada. I'm not impressed with any of them.

    These changes were in the works for many months, I believe, as they had to go through the legislature. It’s a change to provincial law.

    There’s also a new building code in effect that requires 20% of parking with EVSE, the rest with rough-in installed in high rise condos: DeMarco Allan LLP | Home
