Canada To Ban New ICE Vehicles By 2035

Now that Canada’s onboard with other countries and many automakers with the ban of ICEs by 2035, will the US follow?


  • Canada follows Quebec’s example with this timeline.

  • The previous date for the ban was 2040.

  • The timeline comes into play to help Canada achieve carbon-neutrality by 2050.


Canada has now officially joined the ranks of other countries that have decided to ban all sales of new internal combustion engine vehicles. The date is set and it happens by 2035.

Last November, the Province of Quebec made the statement to cut all ICEs by 2035, following a similar announcement made by California in September. Initially, the goal was to proceed with the ICE ban in 2040 but Canada’s goal of achieving carbon-neutrality by 2050 will be better served by the revised date.

In order to support these efforts, La Presse reports that the Canadian Government will continue to offer the $5,000 incentive despite the fact that the price gap between EVs and ICEs is shrinking. As well, the Government promises significant investments in infrastructure and related jobs.

While this is good news, there’s no overlooking the fact that the US will need to follow suit in order for Canada’s decision to pay off for the environment. Such a commitment will be far more to achieve in the US given the size of the market and various special interest groups.
