Congratulations to all of you!


 The Ministry of Government Relations for Saskatchewan would like to hear from you (more specifically, Electricians who reside in Saskatchewan)

The Ministry of Government Relations will be conducting a survey between June 20th and July 20th to better understand if provincial regulations related to electrical licensing and the licensing process are adequate, clear and current.

Licensed electrical contractors, journeymen, employers and supply houses will be invited to participate.

The survey link is here > - You might also receive an email from the ministry informing about this survey.

It should only take about 15 - 20 minutes to complete the survey. Individual responses will be kept confidential and anonymous.

Input provided will help the ministry make improvements to regulations and policy on electrical licensing.

Please contact Government Relations at if you have any questions.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this important effort!
