October 12, 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – Building on Cadillac Fairview’s (CF) previous announcement of launching a national electric vehicle charging program starting in 2017, the Company is pleased announce the deployment of its first series of new networked chargers at four CF shopping centres in Montréal this month.
CF’s new EV charging stations are now active at CF’s Greater Montréal shopping centre properties including, CF Fairview Pointe-Claire, CF Carrefour Laval, CF Galeries d’Anjou, and CF Promenades St. Bruno. Developed in partnership with FLO – the Canadian leader in EV charging solutions - these charging stations are connected to the FLO charging network, which includes more than 3,000 stations across Canada.
“At Cadillac Fairview, we are in constant pursuit of innovative ways to help to build stronger and greener communities across the country,” said Sal Iacono, Executive Vice President, Operations, Cadillac Fairview. “Through our partnership with FLO, we’re able to provide our guests with a best-in-class experience with a unique amenity that promote sustainability, as well as a low carbon future in Canada.”
With electric vehicles continuing to gain popularity in Canada, CF is committed to staying ahead of growing consumer demand by offering Canadians 45 new EV chargers at various CF properties.
“As a proudly Canadian company, continuing to roll out charging stations throughout the country to fulfil EV drivers’ needs wherever they are—at home, at work or on the go—is what we have been striving for,” said Louis Tremblay, President and CEO of FLO. “We’ve developed a strong partnership with Cadillac Fairview that is allowing us to encourage and facilitate EV adoption in Canada and we look forward to a bright future together.”
In Quebec, eight new level 2 chargers and four new universal fast chargers have been deployed at CF properties. Throughout the rest of Canada, CF will deploy an additional 22 level 2 chargers and 11 universal fast chargers across 11 other sites, with the potential for more to be announced in the coming months.
