The legislation that regulates electrical work and workers in Manitoba changed as of January 1, 2006. All electrical workers in Industry are required to be licensed. The changes that were made to the Electricians License Act E50 were made specifically to address the issue of public safety, which ensures that every electrical worker is trained to a safe standard.
