Starting June 1, Electric Autonomy Canada will host six, weekly panel discussions with leaders from the Canadian battery and automotive sectors to explore the need and road map for establishing Canada’s national electric vehicle battery supply chain
Canada is one of the few countries in the world with all the components in place to enable the development of a national battery supply chain. From coast-to-coast-to-coast Canada has the materials, talent and manufacturing capabilities to form a completely independent and vertically integrated value chain. But one challenge remains: harnessing these rich, regional attributes to turn that potential into reality.
We will be convening stakeholders from across the country to talk about their work and how it can integrate into a national framework, and the impact it will have on the country to be able to establish an initiative on this scale.
You are invited to join the conversation and register for one, or all, of the discussion panels which will explore these topics:
- Episode 1: National Overview – June 1
- Episode 2: Canadian R&D and Innovation in Batteries – June 9
- Episode 3: Battery Metals Extraction and Processing – June 15
- Episode 4: Active Materials and Cells – June 22
- Episode 5: Pack and Vehicle Assembly – June 29
- Episode 6: Battery Second Life – Reuse/Recycling – July 6
Attendance at these events is free and registration is available here:
Panelists are leaders in the Canadian ecosystem and have made enormous contributions to their fields. They include: Dr. Jeffery Dahn, Professor of Physics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University and NSERC/Tesla Canada Industrial Research Chair; Samantha Espley, President of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum; Marc Bedard, CEO and Founder of the Lion Electric Co.; Flavio Volpe, President of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association; Emmanuelle Toussaint, Vice President Legal, Regulatory and Public Affairs at Volvo Group and many more.
We are grateful for the participation of all the panelists and for the support and involvement of our Presenting Sponsor, Invest in Canada.
