The voice of the electrical industry in the greater Ottawa Area

 The Electrical Contractors Association of Ottawa was founded in 1964 to represent the owners and operators of electrical contracting companies mainly engaged in the industrial, commercial, institutional, residential and service markets in the Greater Ottawa Area. 

ECA Ottawa speaks on behalf of its members on issues regarding apprenticeship, electrical construction, construction legislation, health and safety policies, education, government relations, labour relations, industry standards and best practices. 

 It is the mission of ECA Ottawa to serve, promote, and improve the electrical contracting industry while ensuring the health and safety of every one of our members and their employees.

ECA Ottawa will be hosting our 60th Annual General Meeting on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at the Mill Street Brewery.
