The Canadian government has announced several plans and initiatives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and increase the use of clean energy in transportation. Some of these include:

  • Investing in the development and deployment of EV charging infrastructure: The government has announced plans to invest in the installation of thousands of EV charging stations across the country, to make it easier for Canadians to charge their EVs.

  • Offering financial incentives for EV buyers: The government offers rebates and tax credits to individuals and businesses that purchase or lease EVs, to make them more affordable.

  • Setting targets for EV sales: The government has set a goal to have 100% of all new cars sold in Canada be zero-emission vehicles by 2040.

  • Developing clean energy standards for transportation: The government is working on developing regulations and standards to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, including the use of clean energy sources like electricity and hydrogen.

  • Supporting research and development of clean energy technologies: The government is investing in research and development of clean energy technologies, including EVs, to promote innovation and help Canadian companies compete in the global market.

Overall, the Canadian government is taking several steps to promote the use of EVs and clean energy in transportation, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help Canada achieve its climate change goals.

Multi Unit Dwellings

in 2021, The Ontario government has announced plans to make changes to zoning regulations to allow for more flexible zoning for multi-unit dwellings, such as duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes, in certain areas in order to increase housing supply and affordability. This change in zoning regulations would allow homeowners to convert their homes into multiple units or build additional units on their property. It's part of the government's efforts to increase housing supply and affordability in the province. However, the implementation of these plans may have some changes and could be in certain areas and may have certain conditions which will be clarified by the government.

Solar

Canada has several plans and initiatives to promote the use of solar energy, which include:

  • Investing in solar energy development: The government has announced plans to invest in the development of solar energy projects, including large-scale projects, community projects, and residential projects.

  • Offering financial incentives for solar energy: The government offers various financial incentives for individuals and businesses that install solar panels on their property, such as rebates, tax credits, and grants.

  • Setting targets for solar energy: Canada has set a target to produce 60% of its electricity from non-emitting sources, including solar, by 2030.

  • Supporting research and development of solar energy technologies: The government is investing in research and development of solar energy technologies to promote innovation and help Canadian companies compete in the global market.

  • Encouraging the use of solar energy in buildings: The government is working on developing regulations and standards to increase the use of solar energy in buildings, including the use of solar panels on the rooftops of buildings.

Overall, the Canadian government is taking several steps to promote the use of solar energy, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help Canada achieve its climate change goals.

The province of Ontario had a plan to promote the use of solar energy, known as the "Feed-in Tariff" (FIT) program. The main objective of the program is to encourage the development of renewable energy projects, including solar, by offering long-term contracts and guaranteed pricing for electricity generated from these sources.

Under the FIT program, the government would enter into contracts with renewable energy developers, including solar energy developers, to purchase electricity generated from their projects at a guaranteed price for a period of 20 years. The program also included a MicroFIT program which was designed to encourage small-scale renewable energy projects such as rooftop solar.

The program was designed to increase the amount of renewable energy in the province's power mix, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create jobs in the renewable energy sector. However, it has been replaced by other program and the details of these new programs might have changed.

It's important to note that, depending on the time of your question, the plan could have changed, and new policies and initiatives might have been implemented, or the old ones modified.
