The EV Battery Recovery program offers resources and guidance documents intended to educate and prioritize EV battery safety. These guidelines complement the program to ensure all eligible electrified vehicle batteries are properly managed and recovered upon request.

While these guides are being provided for information, it is the responsibility of every individual handling EV batteries to understand and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.


There are multiple regulators at both the Federal and Provincial levels who set and enforce rules and requirements for the management of EV batteries. Learn more about the different transportation regulations and classifications.
