Licensing programs apply to:
- employers; and
- individuals who provide electrical installation services, and perform such work on behalf of the public and within premises they may own.
These programs provide public protection from potential hazards associated with the use of electrical installations. The licensing programs, in conjunction with permit and inspection programs established under The Electrical Inspection Act administered by SaskPower, provide public protection and ensure that electrical installations comply with safety standards.
Effective July 1, 2018, Electrical Contractor Guarantee Bond Increase
The Ministry of Government Relations has consolidated The Electrical Licensing Regulations from three regulations into one, reducing red tape for electrical contractors and providing consumers with better protection while continuing to ensure a high degree of public safety.
The Electrical Contractor Guarantee Bond will be $10,000 versus the previous $5,000 coverage, and the bond form will be updated to be more concise.
Electrical licensing will apply the new bond rate as licences and bonds come up for renewal, after July 1, 2018.
More details about these changes can be found in this Electrical Licensing Changes FAQs document. If you have any questions, call 306-787-4530 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, or email email@example.com.
