    At this point, Ottawa owners rely on the Montreal store and service centre. I was told that a technician is on call in Ottawa. There is no SuperCharger here. Hoping there will be more local support by summer 2018. We obviously need AWD, cold package and winter tires to survive our winters.

    I'm hoping we get an Ottawa service centre at minimum by launch as I'm a fair bit closer to Ottawa then Toronto. I imagine Kingston will eventually get one but probably not for awhile. We do have superchargers though.

    I was looking at the Supercharger map and it shows a supercharger downtown Ottawa opening end of 2017. One can always hope!

      all of the future locations are pinned to that city's city center. So it probably will be somewhere in the city limits, but not specifically where the pin shows ;)

        Ottawa SC is great for tourists but not so much for owners since we mainly charge at home. Service Centre and Showroom is what's needed.

          Folks, here is my new avatar. On the left is Maya, a nuclear-powered Eskie-Poo. Word of advice: 71 is too old to get a puppy. Good news: my 10-year old Poodle is a few years younger and a few pounds lighter.

            I'm concerned that if we pick up our Tesla's at the Montreal store we may not be eligible for the Ontario rebates. Do you think we will have to go to the Toronto stores?

            Good question. I'm assuming that, since we are ordering online in Ontario, it will be deemed to be an Ontario purchase. I will follow up and post whatever information I can get.

            I have carefully examined all relevant information on the MTO web site. It seems very clear that the primary requirement is for the car to be registered and plated first in Ontario. Check the web site at:

            http://www.forms.ssb.gov.on.ca/mbs/...tFileAttach/023-2096E~3/$File/2096E_Guide.pdf

            This section is interesting: "New BEVs and PHEVs that are purchased or leased outside of Ontario and imported into the province by the original owner/lessee are eligible for an incentive provided they meet all program criteria and were not plated and registered in any other jurisdiction prior to being plated and registered in Ontario."

            By buying online in Ontario, we will pay Ontario sales tax.
            If you are picking up the Model 3 in Montreal, get the VIN of the car then register and obtain plates for the car in Ontario and bring them to Montreal so they can be attached. I'm only attaching the rear plate and keeping the front plate on the dash until I purchase a front plate mounting bracket from EVannex (it attaches without drilling holes in the fascia or bumper.)

            Hope this helps.

            Thank you very much for checking on this. Of course a little trip to The Big Smoke to pick up my Tesla wouldn't exactly be a chore :)
