EV Connect, a California-based software-as-a-service company that has built the infrastructure to allow site owners and utilities to quickly deploy, manage, and scale customized EV charging networks, announced its plans to expand its EV charging network into Canada.
With new Canadian clients and hires, EV Connect ULC is opening its first office in Toronto, Ontario, and will offer the same trusted products and services as its parent company. EV Connect Canada’s initial plan is to empower businesses of all sizes to provide 1,000 EV charging stations by the end of 2022.
EV Connect’s trademark ability to simplify the set-up, management, and optimization of EV charging with premium driver support will now be offered to Canadian businesses, utilities, energy suppliers, multi-family properties, educational campuses, fleets, and those in the hospitality industry. As part of the launch, EV Connect will establish a network of value-added resellers (VARs) and installation companies to serve the Canadian market.
“We look forward to serving the Canadian market and lending our expertise to those who face the challenge of managing complex choices around hardware and software, network integrations, physical installations, and long-term management and maintenance of charging stations,” says Jordan Ramer, CEO and Founder of EV Connect. “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s goal to reduce Canada’s emissions to 40% below 2005-levels by ramping up cleantech and sustainability efforts perfectly aligns with EV Connect’s vision. Together, we are excited to build a greener planet and collaborate to reach Canada’s decarbonization goals.”

EV Connect will leverage its streamlined approach to EV charging to launch its platform in Canada.
