June 16, 2023 – Electrical Cable Supply Ltd. is donating electrical building wire to “Tools in the Trades” for use in their boot camps across the province.

“Having witnessed one of the Tools in the Trades boot camps […], we recognized its key role and impact in addressing Ontario’s skilled trades shortage,” said Rick Vascotto, executive vice-president, Sales-Eastern Canada. “At ECS, we believe in connecting people in our communities and powering their success. We are thrilled to join Support Ontario Youth, empowering our province’s future electrical talent.”

These hands-on boot camps feature helpful demonstrations, trade exercises, career workshops, networking opportunities, an expert panel, and lunch. All participants also receive a free tool kit to kickstart their careers. The goal is to attract people to the skilled trades and pursue apprenticeships.

A Silver Sponsor of the Tools in the Trades boot camp program, ECS is supplying NMD 14/2 electrical wire to 35 boot camps in the coming year.
