It’s a new era at the Electrical Contractors’ Association of Ottawa and we invite you to be part of it. The simple truth is that you, like all of our members, make significant contributions as a signatory contractor but you are not taking advantage of an entire range of programs, services and benefits available at your fingertips.
As a business owner, we understand you are looking for a return on your investment. As a member of ECA Ottawa, you would have access to nearly 20 companies offering corporate discounts on everything from fuel costs, to workwear, vehicles, insurance, leasing and much more. Any one of these programs will save you far more than your incredibly small membership dues. Also, there is a vast array of free or heavily subsidized training and professional development programs, documents, business forms, and so much more. All for less than a cup of Tim Horton’s a day!
Of course, ECA Ottawa still acts as the administrative office for the Local Apprenticeship Committee (LAC). We support unionized apprentices from the start of their term to the writing of their Qualification of Trade, acting as a liaison between the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, the electrical union and the apprentice.
As one of 11 area associations ECA Ottawa speaks on behalf of its members on issues regarding electrical contracting legislation, health and safety policies, and construction legislation. We also lobby on behalf of our members to make changes in the industry representing the best interests of our membership at both a regional and a provincial level.
All of these options, and more, are only available if you are a member of ECA Ottawa. Join ECA Ottawa’s nearly 100 unionized electrical contractors who operate in the greater Ottawa area. Become an active member of the association., a voice for your industry, and a presence in your community.
