To Promote, Strengthen and Represent the Electrical Industry in Ontario!

The Ontario Electrical Safety Code comes into effect in May 2016. The OEL, in conjunction with ESA, is scheduling training sessions across the province through our local OEL chapters to ensure our members are prepared for the new Ontario Electrical Safety Code (26th Edition). 

Below are OEL's 2016 OESC Training dates. Please reference your city or chapter to see when one will be available in your area.

Don't see one in your area? Contact the provincial office and we can help put you in touch with the closest chapter to your location, or help with organizing a training if you're interested in hosting a session.
