About Sun Country
BRINGING SUSTAINABILITY TO LIFE
Sun Country Highway Ltd. is a progressive Canadian owned company leading the electric vehicle movement by raising awareness and promoting the adoption of zero emission transportation.
Our goal is to turn as many inefficient business models upside-down to create sustainable solutions and reverse their impact on our planet. Sun Country works directly with consumers, businesses, and government agencies to drive social, economic, and environmentally sustainable concepts.
More than a distributor, Sun Country Highway is a full service EV solution provider.
Sun Country has made it possible to travel across Canada with reasonable EV charge times through the deployment of a high powered Level II EV charging network. Our initial goal was to support the growth of Electric Vehicle Charging infrastructure in order to sustain the EV movement. This initiative has been, and continues to be, funded without outside investors or government incentives. To date, we are responsible for deploying thousands of charging stations throughout North America and have made it possible to travel from coast to coast, emission free.

Making the Impossible Possible
People leading global change for a sustainable future.
Kent Rathwell, Founder & CEO
Kent has a mission focused on global sustainability - to make a difference today and for future generations.
“The typical household spends a lot of hard earned, after-tax money on transportation. Our vision is focused on helping the average person keep money in their pockets and spend time with their families, while fostering a culture of economic and environmental sustainability.”
In 2007 Kent purchased and re-purposed Sun Country Farms as the most sustainable business in Saskatchewan. In 2012 Kent created Sun Country Highway. He electrified and traveled the ‘World’s Longest Green Highway’ without assistance or funding, creating massive awareness and momentum within the EV space. As a result of this and many other initiatives including Sun Country Organics, Sun Country Eco Rides and Sun Country Eco Store, Kent is truly ‘making the impossible possible’.
