Powering Your Communities Safely and Effectively

They are the stars behind the stars.

The Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario (ECAO) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) are lighting up communities everywhere. Yet few realize the important role they play behind the scenes. We all know the importance of doctors and nurses in saving people’s lives. But few know the critical role that properly wired hospitals play in these life-saving processes.

When travellers begin a journey at Canada’s largest airport – the Lester B. Pearson Airport, they know the pilots, ground crew and flight controllers are there to make it happen. But who thinks about the highly complex electrical system that keeps operating systems on track?

And remember the last concert you went to? Your favorite musician may have rocked your world, but it couldn’t have happened without certified electricians keeping them safely wired for sound. They touch so many aspects of our lives without most of us realizing it.

“Can you imagine a concert without sound and lights? Me neither. How fantastic to see Ontario’s electrical workers walking the Red Carpet this year, skilled trade professionals who make sure we see and hear Canada’s greatest talent at this year’s JUNO awards, and year-round on stages cross the country,”

says Erin Benjamin, Executive Director of Music Canada Live
