Ottawa, Ontario EV Charging Stations Info

General EV Charging Information

The city of Ottawa in Ontario, Canada, has 567 public charging station ports (Level 2 and Level 3) within 15km. 95% of the ports are level 2 charging ports and 24% of the ports offer free charges for your electric car.

As Canada’s capital, Ottawa is the most bilingual city of the country. Canada’s seat of government is located on Parliament Hill and many national jewels are exhibited across Ottawa.

The charging infrastructure in Ottawa is expanding rapidly and the capital hosts more than level 2 charging stations (within 15km) and are fast charging stations. Just check out the ChargeHub charging stations map to locate them, available on iOS and Android!

On the tourism side, take a moment to see Parliament Hill. No matter the time of the year, it delights visitors. You can view the Changing Guard ceremony during the hot summer days, and at night, witness an incredible light and sound show. The Parliament buildings are a few steps away from hotels, downtown and level 2 charging stations.

The Rideau Canal is the only site listed as a UNESCO World Heritage that is located in Ontario, and is not to be missed. Built between 1826 and 1832, this canal enchants its visitors who walk or bike alongside of it. During winter, it transforms in the world’s largest skating rink.

Strategically located between Toronto and Montreal, the capital understands that it is in fact on the connecting highways that there is often a lack of charging stations for the incoming numerous visitors.

That is why, in 2016, the Ontario Government has accepted the proposition submitted by Circuit électrique - install a corridor of fast charging stations between Quebec and Ottawa. This proposition aims to add 14 fast charging stations (DCFC) nearby major highways and streets (401, 416, 417 and 17) as well as the implementation of 8 level 2 charging stations (240 volts) in the city of Ottawa.

You will find that Ottawa’s cultural attractions, museums and art galleries offer charging services on site such as the Canadian Museum of Nature, the City Hall Art Gallery and the Canada Science and Technology Museum.
