About Us

Big company results. Small company handshake.

You have a lot on the line when it comes to the safety and reliability of your electrical systems and instrumentation. For 40 years, CEL has been a trusted partner in providing comprehensive, fully-integrated electrical consulting services for industrial, agricultural and commercial facilities. Our expertise goes beyond electrical installation – and extends to engineering, instrumentation, and predictive-preventative maintenance. Our full suite of electrical solutions extends to our ability to custom manufacture CSA-approved electrical equipment.

With strategic locations across Canada, CEL operates where our clients do: conducting inconvenient work in inconvenient places. By creating strong, reliable connections, we are able to foster a sense of confidence and trust with our clients – ensuring their ongoing success.

Safety is our first priority

Safety is our top priority at CEL. It is enshrined in our commitment to “Having The Conversation” – a motto that reflects our company-wide policy of never remaining silent when safety is a concern. We are rigorous in our commitment to the health and safety of all onsite personnel, equipment and facilities – as well as that of the general public. Through consultation and cooperation with our employees, we have implemented and maintain a safety program with a goal of zero incidents and injuries.

We are proud to be longstanding members of ISNetworld, a global resource for connecting hiring clients with safe and reliable contractors. We are also proud to be COR certified in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Through programs such as Complyworks and myComply, we are able to successfully manage compliance standards to reduce loss and injury.
