What to look for in a licensed electrical contractor

Licensed electrical contractors are the only businesses in Ontario legally authorized to do electrical work in your home. It holds the electrician responsible and liable to penalties in the event of illegal, immoral, or incompetent actions.

Licensed electricians are:

  • fully insured
  • will arrange permits
  • qualified to perform the type of electrical work you require
  • offer a Certificate of Inspection
  • willing to provide references

Spotting a fraud

To ensure your electrician is licensed, always ask for their electrical contractor's licence number from ECRA/ESA. It should be on their business card, estimate and their vehicle. Also, make sure to get an ESA Certificate of Inspection when the electrical work is complete.

You should be suspicious if:

  • You're asked you to take out the permit with the Electrical Safety Authority
  • When asked for their ESA/ECRA license, they don't have it or can't show it to you. If they cannot produce a verifiable license number, they are not properly certified
  • They say you don't need to involve your local electric utility to change your electrical panel or upgrade your electrical service
  • Your General Contractor insists he has an LEC doing the work, but he cannot show an electrical permit, or a vehicle with an ESA/ECRA

Electrical work is dangerous. It can lead to fire and electrocution. What's more, hiring an unqualified electrician is against the law in Ontario. Your contractor needs to have the expertise, equipment and training to safely work on your home. When you and your family's lives may be at stake, it's not worth the risk to hire an amature electrician.
