Master Electrician License Renewal

Effective July 1, 2016 ESA will implement Five-Year Licences which will allow Licensed Electrical Contractors (LECs) and Master Electricians (MEs) to provide licensing documentation to ESA once every five years.  In each of the other four years, LECs/MEs will self-declare that their documentation is valid, as well as pay the annual renewal fee.

Note: All licensing correspondence will now be sent via your preferred method, rather than mail only.  If you need to update your contact information please complete and submit this form to ESA.Licensing@electricalsafety.on.ca.

 

Random Audits

All licensees will be subject to a random audit at some point in the five-year renewal cycle. Audits can also be conducted if a complaint is received by ESA that a licence holder is failing to meet the requirements of their licence or does not have the appropriate documentation.

If you have already been issued renewal forms for a licence expiring up to July 1, 2016 you can use those forms. Please remit payment for only one year.
