As a nation, Canada plans to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, which led to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's announcement of a ban on sales of new combustion engine vehicles. The announcement he made in June 2021 mandates that all passenger car models contribute zero emissions by 2035.

The Canadian government has now published its Emissions Reduction Plan, which details how the nation will reach net-zero emissions. It shows Canada wants zero-emission vehicles to make up 20 percent of new vehicle sales by 2026, increasing to 60 percent by 2030.

By 2035, Canada aims to have 35 percent of its medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles be zero-emission, with that number jumping to 100 percent by 2040. An incentive of $1.36 billion is going towards helping consumers turn to zero-emissions vehicles such as electric vehicles (EVs). Currently, a citizen can get up to a $4,010 discount on EVs, plug-in hybrids, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
