details about the Electric Vehicle Manufacturing Value Chain Program (EVMP)

NGen is looking to invest up to $35 million in innovative, business-led, collaborative projects that strengthen Canadian capability and content, for integration into Canada’s supply chain for ZEVs.      

The program will target the manufacturing scale-up of innovation along the ZEV value-chain, specifically those of road-based Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), fuel Cell Electric vehicles (FCEV) and their respective systems and components.   

The goals of this Challenge are to:  

  1. Create Jobs.  
  2. Create value for the Canadian economy. 
  3. Develop new processes from crushing ore, mineral refinement, materials development, manufacturing scale-up of components, systems and final assembly and recycling.  
  4. Increase the value and integration of made-in-Canada parts and technology into EV value chains and to scale manufacturing.  
  5. Reduce the overall cost of manufacturing ZEV products in Canada.  
  6. Increase the quality of the products being manufactured.  
  7. Reduce overall operational emissions.  
  8. Build flexibility into the production process.
