Why Hire a Licensed Electrician

Electrical is a very dangerous field, not only for the workers, but it can also be deadly for the inhabitants. This is why the ESA and the CEC were created. They work hand in hand to ensure that everyone is safe and secure. Licensed electrical contractors are entirely bound to follow the CEC, with the ESA being their governing body. This immediately makes it safer for all parties involved. A properly trained electrician will be able to safely, and efficiently complete any work in a steadfast manner if following the CEC. Generally, it might cost more than under the table work, but it is guaranteed to be done safely, and properly. Electrical companies are legally required to pull a permit for any length of wire they run.
Television shows have a habit of glamourising and emphasizing the worst of the worst from the construction industry. Shows like “Holmes makes it right” are an example of the problems that can occur if you hire an unreliable contractor to do the work. If you are ever unsure of an electrical contractor, you can always contact the ESA or your governing electrical body to confirm that they are licensed. To even have a business license in Ontario, you must have at least two million dollars liability insurance, and five million for larger jobs. That is a simple example of the type of security you could have from a licensed electrical contractor.

Client’s Testimony

He figure out an odd issue we had with our outlets

Had Bert come out to figure out an odd issue we had with our outlets. He was able to resolve the issue quickly and also was more than reasonable with the cost. Would highly recommend Current Electric.

Rob has done plenty of work at the restaurant I manage

Rob has done plenty of work at the restaurant I manage. It’s a heritage building and there is always work to be done, he completes it in a timely, professional manner and does the job right every time. Every one of the 10 or so jobs he’s done for us is a job well done. He quotes the job for what it is and if he can do it cheaper, he always does. Very honest contractor and I would recommend him to anyone

A friendly professional that answers all questions

Robert, the owner, is a friendly professional that answers all questions directly and does not over-sell. He estimated me a competitive rate of 1300+tax for exchanging an old 60 amp fuse panel to a new 100 amp breaker panel, and all work of Robert’s team was coordinated swiftly with the hydro company’s exchanging the meter base; the work was done in one day and about 5 hours total. Very pleased with the full service and interaction and aim to return to Current Electric when I need advice when fiddling with my own small electrical projects as well as for his professional service.

The price was competitive and they were personable

I couldn’t be more pleased with the job that Robert and his crew did installing my new electrical panel, breakers and car charger. The price was competitive and they were personable, reliable and knowledgeable.

If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.


Rob is conscionable and gentle

Beneath the bravado of fumbling iberville and romex, Rob is conscionable and gentle. Rob did my electrical work. Small, not mentioning. But an offshoot of the pathetic job, he paid a needy kid’s college fund, and offered charities his most valuable commodity — his own prowess with electricals and his command over klein tools. [God, let this man be greatly successful not on his competence alone but on the virtues which we are made in Your image, and help this man source good materials for the lowest cost and mark up no more than what is just.] Rob will surely see something from santa this year. ..
