Help Promote the Importance of Electrical Safety in Homes

National Electricity Month is an important cause, given how much Canadians depend on electricity to power their lives at home – from appliances that provide convenience, to electronics and other modern technology that offer comfort and entertainment. These technologies offer plenty of benefits but they also place a high demand on electrical systems at home, potentially causing serious safety risks.

To commemorate National Electricity Month, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) will promote the use of arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) to consumers throughout the month of June.  Join the cause to help promote the importance of electrical safety in homes.

Campaign ads are available below to help spread the message to homeowners and reinforce the importance of modernizing electrical systems to support the power that runs throughout homes. Canadians depend on electricity to power their lives at home – from appliances that provide convenience, to electronics and other modern technology that offer comfort and entertainment.

EFC together with an AFCI task group, which includes representatives from the Wiring Supplies section and Distribution Equipment section, have developed a portal to educate the public on the safety benefits of AFCI technology. Visit the Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI) Information Portal
