Default Brit/Canadian Electrician Needed in Alberta, Early 2018

I'm looking for a licensed Electrician offering their services as an Independent Contractor in Canada. You'll be delivering services to a major British employer with a significant footprint in Canada.

The Electrician must:
- be British or Canadian
- be licensed
- be available to be contracted in Alberta, Canada as an independent contractor - this is not an offer of employment.
- work to Canadian Electrical Code (CSA C22.1) Standards
- be able to certify compliance before 22 March 2018
- provide their own tools


Preferably:
- Your electrician's license will be issued by Canada or a European Union nation, including Britain, or The USA or Australia or New Zealand. Licenses issued by other nations may be considered.


The task is to:
- Over a number of days, inspect the installation of a large number of electrical equipment cabinets in Alberta. Each cabinet contains 1 or 2 power distribution units (PDUs) each with 12 sockets. You will not be testing the electrical equipment which has been placed into the cabinets which is powered from the PDUs. Testing will be from each PDU in the cabinet back to the mains power supply, perhaps at the first circuit breaker or as directed by you to comply with CSA C22.1. Some cabinets may contain internal UPS devices between the PDUs and Mains power supply.
- advise on Canadian Electrical Code (CSA C22.1) compliance/non-compliance and document any non-compliance and recommended fix
- bring the installation up to code if necessary and where work is approved and
- certify compliance with CSA C22.1 to confirm that the installed equipment does not pose a safety hazard.

This post is about a one-off contracting opportunity not an offer of ongoing employment, though it may be of interest to you that after an initial certification in Alberta, an annual visual inspection and 5-yearly full inspection may be required in the future, and that in future there may be equipment in Ottawa requiring inspection.

Billing for time, expertise, parts, labour, travel and accommodation is expected, with payment by invoice.

please contact: [email protected] if you're interested

As electrician is a regulated trade, how will a foreign licensed electrician be able to work in Canada without taking the provincial trade exam?
