Companies that subsidize electric vehicles

Some large Quebec companies choose to encourage their employees to swap their gasoline cars for an electric vehicle.

These grants are in addition to government and municipal programs.

For these companies, it is an opportunity to send a strong message in favor of the fight against climate change. It is also an opportunity to encourage their employees in this direction.

New employers were to be added in 2021 to this list. If so, please let us know so we can add it
