Update on the work of ECRA (TOR)
• ECRA has evolved as a Provincial Agency to Govern
Electrical Contractors and we required a “New Set of
Rules” for the Council to move forward
• The ECRA Council met a milestone through the
completion of a new Terms of Reference Document

remove redundant information to serve our members
more effectively
• It provided sound principles for working with our partner

2013 Presentation from the Chair of ECRA
Update on the Guide to Duties of LEC’s and ME’s
• Now that ECRA has reduced the number of persons
operating illegally in our Industry we are able to switch our
focus to Electrical Contractors and Master Electricians
• The council worked with ESA and their associates to
develop a “Guide to Duties of LEC’s and ME’s”
• The purpose of the guide is to provide an interpretation of
Regulation 570 in everyday language using examples
• This guide will keep our members better informed about
the governance and expectations for Electrical
Contractors and Master Electricians
20
Electrical Contractor Registration Agency of the Electrical Safety Authority
2013 Presentation from the Chair of ECRA
Ontario College of Trades - OCOT
• The Ontario College of Trades – Called OCOT, it is a new
initiative to better govern the trades in Ontario
• Not everyone is a proponent and many of our members
are not pleased
• This reminds me of a time not so long ago when ECRA
was created and many people were opposed
• It is important to give OCOT a chance and more
importantly we as ECRA members should get involved to
shape the outcome and define our own destiny
• Trades persons running trades is not a bad idea!
21
Electrical Contractor Registration Agency of the Electrical Safety Authority
2013 Presentation from the Chair of ECRA

bring new ideas and a renewed commitment
