How do I notify ESA about electrical work?

The person doing the electrical work files the notification. So if you’re doing the work, you file it. If you hire someone, that person files. Note that by Ontario law, they must be a Licensed Electrical Contractor. Do not hire an unlicensed contractor or take out a notification on behalf of anyone else. Learn more in What You Need to Know – Take out a Notification.

There are two ways to file a Notification:

  1. Download a form from ESA’s Forms Page. Send the completed form and payment by email to ESA.Cambridge@electricalsafety.on.ca or by fax to 800-667-4278. Send it by mail or courier to ESA Customer Service Centre, 400 Sheldon Dr, Unit 1, Cambridge, ON N1T 2H9.
  2. Contact our Customer Service Centre at 1-877-ESA-SAFE (372-7233).
