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, and automatically enrols you in Manitoba Hydro’s MyBill program. We also offer a pre-authorized payment plan for permit accounts.

Apply for a permit account (a valid electrical licence is required).

For more information, email permit accounts.
