ESA Stakeholder Advisory Councils
Advisory councils play a valuable role in helping to shape electrical safety initiatives. Their input and advice helps inform ESA’s strategy and advance its safety goals and objectives. ESA currently has six stakeholder advisory councils: five provide advice and counsel to ESA management and one, the Electrical Contractor Registration Agency Advisory Council, provides advice and counsel to ESA’s Regulatory Affairs and Governance Committee.
Advisory councils are guided by terms of reference and chaired by individuals voted to the role by their respective council members, with the exception of the Ontario Provincial Code Committee and the Cross-Sector Advisory Council, which are chaired by ESA management. Specific projects and issues are addressed by working groups or ad hoc committees when appropriate, and consultations are used to gather broad stakeholder feedback on key safety initiatives.
