Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) Inspections

Mandated by the Government of Ontario, the ESA Electrical Safety Authority is a non-profit corporation that acts as both advocate for electrical safety across the province as well as the safefy regulator. All businesses, homes and industrial premises in Waterloo, Kitchener and the surrounding area must pass the inspection.

The Electrical Safety Authority is designated by Ontario Regulation 89/99 as the responsible authority for purposes of section 113 of the Electricity Act, 1998 and regulations made thereunder. The only such regulation is Ontario Regulation 164/99 as amended by Ontario Regulation 10/02. This regulation adopts, by reference, the Canadian Electrical Code together with specific Ontario amendments and is referred to as the Ontario Electrical Safety Code (the OESC).

If you want to book an electrical safety inspection in Waterloo, please contact the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) at 1-877-372-7233 or visit
