I am in the process of getting my masters. The inspector was telling us of a guy who put an add in yellow.ca who was not a registered elecrical contractor. Within 3 weeks he received registered mail asking him to remove his add or be fined! They are really cracking down out there. The inspector said that they are handing out fines whether your lisenced or not. If you don't meet there requirments, then your working illegally.


Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows!!
