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

2015 Electrical Industry Conference

Thanks to everyone who attended this year's 2015 Electrical Industry Conference and made it an overwhelming success.

Throughout the course of the conference, we heard from expert speakers, such as, Gus Takkale - who gave us key strategies to Make it happen, embrace change and thrive, OEL's very own Safety Communications Committee for relevant updates pertaining to health and safety within the industry, how to plan for wealth as a contractor featuring RBC's portfolio, business and wealth management team, and Andrew Houston - who shared insights with us on how to stop pricing ourselves out of business.

This three-day conference was packed with information, local splendors and exciting entertainment as teams challenged each other in this year's Quest and raced to victory with the return of the ever popular Nascar Bob.

Once again, thank you to all who joined us, thanks to our sponsors, volunteers and staff. This impressive event would not have been possible without your support and hard work.

We look forward to next year's conference, hosted by OEL's Elgin and District Chapter in St. Thomas from May 11 - May 16, 2016.

Tri County - Weigh Your Scrap and Give Back

Brad Cooper of B.J. Cooper and Sons Electrical deliver their scrap barrel 

This year, the Tri County Chapter really stepped forward and showed they were innovators, not only leadership, but also in strength by working with their members and community partners to create a fundraising campaign designed to give back.

Weigh Your Scrap and Give Back is a fundraising initiative between the OEL Tri County Chapter, the Brant Community Healthcare Systems Foundation (BCHS) and Reclaim Solutions in an effort to help purchase patient equipment for the BCHS Foundation (that is not funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care), to provide essential resources, and invest in new and innovative technology.

All members have to do is donate between 10 - 100 per cent of their scrap metal from their worksite or make a financial commitment to help support local health care. A barrel is dropped off at the site and participants fill it with used product. Reclaim then comes to the site and weighs it on location, and provides the value of the goods. Funds raised go to the help the BCHS Foundation at the Brantford General and the Willett, Paris.

For more information about the program, or if you’d like to know how you can involve your chapter with this amazing program, please contact Mal McEachern (President) or Victor Becker (Communications Director). Full program information can be found by clicking here
