Maintaining and promoting the value of certification for electricians is critical to the future of the industry and to the safety of both workers and the public.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Construction Council of Ontario (IBEW CCO) proudly represents more than 17,000 highly-trained men and women working in various electrical sectors.
The IBEW CCO supports a strong apprenticeship system that provides extensive training and proper supervision on the job. It is critical to ensuring the trade remains an appealing career opportunity and there are enough skilled workers to meet Ontario’s future infrastructure needs.
It’s also paramount that the value of certification be maintained and promoted to ensure that anyone doing the work of an electrician has the skills to do the job correctly and safely.
Whether it’s wiring a school, hospital, airport or a home, the public is entitled to highly trained journeypersons and apprentices who can provide reliable and professional electrical contracting services. Everyone’s safety depends on it.
