About EV Society
We’ve been advocating the advantages of electric cars since 1991.
You could say we’re passionate.
Vision, Mission & Values
A world where everyone’s journey is safe, clean, and fun.
To utilise the expertise of electric vehicle owners and enthusiasts to help Canadians transition to electric transportation through education and advocacy.
We value Integrity, Diversity and Passion. Our message must be delivered with optimism, enthu-siasm, and honesty. The merits of electric vehicles sell themselves once understood, and do not require high-pressure sales tech-niques.
We collaborate and band together on shared goals and values to help inspire and educate our community on the benefits of electric mobility. Together we are greater than the sum of our parts!
EV Society is incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. Everything we do is guided by 4 core “Objects”:
- Promoting an interest in vehicles propelled by electric power and which may include hybrid power sources.
- Promoting the reduction of pollution in the air by transportation vehicles, thereby enhancing the natural environment and improving the quality of life.
- Gathering and disseminating information about electric vehicles.
- Providing the means of social activity, mutual helpfulness, recreation, and other advantages of membership.
EV Society is a registered Not-for-Profit with an elected Board of Directors. The Board carries out and oversees collective actions to ensure the sustainability and relevance of the EV Society for the present into the future while meeting the interests of members.
