The Province of BC has set emission reduction targets for the transportation sector of 27-32% below 2007 levels by 2030. In October 2021, the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 was released, which committed to several policies to help reach these targets.
The provincial government is proposing amendments to the Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) Act, with the aim to increase access and choice for ZEV car buyers and expand BC’s charging network.
If passed, automakers will be required to meet an increasing annual percentage of new light-duty ZEV sales and leases: 26% of light-duty vehicle sales by 2026, 90% by 2030 and 100% by 2035, five years before the original target.
Calling all BC Carriers- if you want your voice heard regarding the Province’s proposed provincial zero emission vehicle (ZEV) mandate, please complete the BCTA Zero-Emissions Vehicles Readiness Survey.
The data gathered from this survey will be used to advise BCTA to develop a road map to help decarbonize our sector and inform our discussions with the Province of BC on a proposed ZEV mandate.
The Government of BC’s annual Climate Change Accountability Report summarizes where the province has made progress on climate action, and this year significant headway has been made towards BC’s legislated greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, and how the province is preparing for the impacts of climate change.
BCTA is pleased to announce that the Provincial government has expanded weight allowances for both electric heavy-duty and hydrogen co-combustion vehicles. This makes BC the first and only Canadian jurisdiction to offer a weight allowance incentive that supports the industry in making investments in clean technology upgrades.
BCTA is accepting applications for CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program Incentives from January 25 to February 5, 2021. Successful completion of the pre-requisite course – from any HDVE Course session from 2019 to 2021 – is mandatory for all applicants.
Please see the Program Guide for details on program requirements and how we process the applications for incentives.
