Hiring an Electrician

Electrical work is dangerous and always best left to a Licensed Electrical Contractor with the expertise, equipment and training to do the job safely. Licensed Electrical Contractors are the only business in Ontario legally allowed to do electrical work in your home, and failing to hire one could result in injury, death, loss of property, or denied insurance claims.

Always hire a Licensed Electrical Contractor. It’s the law.
