Electrical contractor permits & programs

Electrical contractors operating outside Winnipeg city limits can take advantage of ePermit, and the Registered Electrical Contractor Program (RECP). Find resources to help you install electrical wiring in accordance with electrical codes.

Permit account

A permit account gives you a monthly billing statement of all your electrical permit charges.

You can sign up to have your monthly permit bills sent digitally through Manitoba Hydro’s online account. We also offer a pre-authorized payment plan for permit accounts.

A valid electrical licence is required as issued by the Office of the Fire Commissioner or the Province of Manitoba’s Inspection and Technical Services.
