“Tools in the Trades” Boot Camps
ECS Partners with Tools in the Trades Boot Camp in Ottawa, Ontario
It’s no secret that the skilled trade industries are facing a workforce shortage in Ontario. At ECS, we believe strongly in the importance of giving back to our communities and investing in the future. That's why we are proud to have partnered with Tools in the Trades Boot Camp as a Silver Sponsor for their program, providing NMD 14/2 electrical wire to 35 Boot Camp events over the coming year.

At last week’s Electrical and Transportation Technology Event held in Ottawa, our Outside Sales Representative, Magda Latawiec, had the opportunity to observe the incredible work Tools in the Trades Boot Camp is doing to equip the next generation of electricians and trades workers. It was an exciting event that featured hands-on demonstrations, trade exercises, career workshops, networking opportunities, an expert panel, and a free tool kit for all attendees – it was even attended by Member of Parliament, Charles Sousa.

"Having witnessed one of the Tools in the Trades Boot Camps in Guelph last October, we recognized its key role and impact in addressing Ontario's skilled trades shortage. At ECS, we believe in connecting people in our communities and powering their success. We are thrilled to join Tools in the Trades Boot Camp, empowering our province's future electrical talent." - Rick Vascotto, Executive Vice President of Sales – Eastern Canada, ECS Electrical Cable Supply.
Our sponsorship of the Tools in the Trades Boot Camps is one way we can do our part to help close the skilled trades gap and ensure the next generation of apprentices are well-equipped to continue the work of those who came before them. ECS is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the Tools in the Trades Boot Camp program and we look forward to seeing the positive results the industry will feel as part of this innovative initiative.
