Canada Mulling Idea Over New ICE Vehicle Ban For North America

With the arrival of a new American President comes hope that a unified market ban on ICE vehicles could happen


  • Biden and Trudeau Administrations agree zero-emission vehicles need to get here faster.

  • 26% of Canadian emissions come from the transport sector.

  • Canada is vowing to hit zero net emissions by 2050.


This idea has been spurred on by numerous other countries and territories that have decided to instill a timeline for the ban of new internal combustion engine vehicle sales. Canadian Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson wants to work on a plan and create a unified North American ICEs.

Many industry specialists and leaders agree that incentives to purchase EVs are not enough. A definitive date by which ICEs will not along be sold is the best way to get OEMs to accelerate the development and roll-out of EVs.

According to Reuters, Canada will be in talks with the US to finds a way to improve the transportation sector’s overall performance. Inspiration comes from many European countries, and closer to home, what Quebec, British Columbia, and California have devised as plans going forward.

There are many factors in play in order to get such a plan off the ground which is why Wilkinson will not jump to conclusions. He said: “I think we can collectively come up with mechanisms that will help both countries make progress on climate change.”
