The Edmonton police chief said Constable Mike Chernyk, a 48-year-old who has been an officer 11 years, was released from the hospital overnight with stab wounds on face and head and abrasions on his arms.
He is now facing five counts of attempted murder, four counts of unsafe driving causing bodily harm, risky operation of a motor vehicle and one weapons-related charge.
In a statement released Sunday afternoon, Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson said the suspect apparently acted alone.
In 2014, Canada was stunned by two deadly attacks that police said were the work of homegrown radicals and led to tougher new anti-terrorism measures. "It is believed at this time that these two incidents are related".
Chernyk managed to radio in what had happened and the manhunt was on.
Police said an Islamic State (IS) group flag was found in one of the vehicles, according to media reports.
It was the latest in a series of assaults around the world that the authorities have labelled as terrorism, including a blast on a commuter train in London last month and Sunday's knife attack at the Saint Charles train station in Marseille, France.
But he added: "I will absolutely tell you we are challenged for resourcing".

Putin critic Alexei Navalny detained by police before pre-election rally
Alexei Navalny was supposed to go to a meeting of the campaign in the province, when he was arrested by the police. It has finally been the subject of several lawsuits, aimed, according to its supporters, to hinder his ambitions.
The chaos began outside the Edmonton Eskimos football game Saturday night when police say a auto rammed a traffic barricade and an officer was stabbed. Four pedestrians were hit and have been hospitalized "with multiple injuries".
Police say the auto struck the EPS officer and sent him flying 15 ft. through the air, before colliding with the cruiser. During the pursuit, the suspect deliberately hit four pedestrians; eventually, the van flipped.
Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale acknowledged Sunday that Abdulahi Hasan Sharif "apparently had some appearance on a police watch list".
On Monday, an unmarked police auto was parked in front of the plain three-storey building listed as Mr. Sharif's address in court documents.
Ahmed Abdulkadir, executive director of the Ogaden Somali Community of Alberta Residents, said he did not know Mr. Sharif, but is concerned his actions will affect Muslim and Somali communities in Edmonton.
In March 2016, a Canadian who said he was acting on orders of Allah attacked two soldiers with a knife at a recruitment centre in Toronto.
Here are the actual victims of the Muslim terrorist's attack. "We are part of the fabric of this country". This would make it a lone-wolf attack and the presence of an IS flag in the auto points to links with the terror outfit.
Regina police will continue to communicate with RCMP, as well as the network of police and law enforcement agencies across Canada.
