No don't think so. You need to be Ontario resident to get Ontario rebate (and same for getting QC rebate)
Yes, I live in ON as I said. But the car is at QC dealership.

My suggestion: call/email every dealer within 100km of you. I bet one of them will have a FFE available. That's what I did and had success.

Someone told that in Montreal area there were FFEs available:

If I live in ON, is it possible to buy in QC and also get ON rebate?
You were asking about ordering a vehicle hence the "no" answer.
To qualify for the rebate you have to be an Ontario resident and vehicle has to be registered in Ontario.

yes, if the car is registered, plated and insured in Ontario. you have to figure out how to transport the car from Montreal to ON without valid vehicle registration.

If you have received an EVIP incentive, you must keep the vehicle registered, plated, insured and road worthy in Ontario in your
name for at least 12 months from the registration date or if leased, keep the leased vehicle for the entire term of the lease noted
on the application. If you do not meet these requirements, you must repay the incentive in full. Any incentive received that you
are not or do not remain eligible for is a debt due to the Crown. In this case, the incentive must be repaid in full and be received
by the Province of Ontario, before you can receive another incentive.

The only choice that you have is go in to your local dealer and see if they will dealer trade the Focus from Quebec or they can buy it outright from the Quebec dealer. The trick is if they will do it. plus unless you want a few hundred km on the car you would need to flatbed it at an extra cost.

After some research, it seems like I can buy car from QC dealer, pay GST portion, get temporary 10-day registration, get the car in ON, register, pay PST portion. Apply for ON rebate.
Some dealers in QC will add PST portion to final price and write a check for you to give to MTO so that you don't have to pay it upfront if you lease/finance.

Very interesting. If you go ahead and do it post the deal so others can use in future if needed.

read the application instructions carefully, don't register it in QC. buy it outright from QC dealer, and flatbed it back to ON.

Pretty sure "temprary registration" or "transit" is not the same as "registered and plated in another jurisdiction". But of course it's better to consult with MTO and SAAQ

well, I won't risk it because there is no appeal if your application is denied.
When you sign and submit this application, you are warranting that you, as the applicant have read and agree to all the
declaration/consent statements below.

c) all decisions made by the Province of Ontario relating to the Program, including applicant eligibility and the amount of the
incentive, are final and binding and can not be appealed.

You can buy the vehicle in Quebec. You don't have to buy it cash either, it can be leased/financed as well. If you finance or lease it the quebec dealer can print out Ontario paperwork for you and that will apply the correct tax percentages for you to show at the mto when it's in Ontario. To get it here you get what is called a trip permit (NOT a temporary sticker) using that permit you drive or tansport the vehicle into Ontario where you then register it with an Ontario ownership and plates. At that point you.ornthe dealer will apply for the EV rebate money.

I ordered Mar 21 from East Court, but don't even have a build date... Customer service gave me Sep 10 estimate last time I called...

Can't believe one day difference in order date would result in >2 months difference in delivery
