When you live in Toronto, you are right at the heart of Canada, and that comes with countless perks. Your proximity to everything that’s happening in the biggest city and the epicentre of work, play, and lifestyle is a long-term investment — one you work hard to sustain, and need to protect.
With the cost of real estate and living in Toronto, you need to do everything you can to protect your home and your loved ones, especially from the risk of the most common disasters like fire and electrical damage. A licensed electrician can help protect everything you love, and prevent them from turning into ash.

At Hi-Lite Electric Inc., we take immense pride in our affiliation with the Electrical Safety Authority’s (ESA) Authorized Contractor Program (ACP). This program stands as a testament to contractors who consistently uphold the stringent standards set by the Ontario Electrical Safety Code, ensuring the highest level of public electrical safety.
The ESA’s Authorized Contractor Program serves as a mark of distinction, exclusively welcoming those contractors who consistently deliver code-compliant work. Being a part of this program isn’t just a recognition; it’s a commitment to excellence and safety in every project undertaken.
This affiliation also translates into the ESA’s selective inspection of our work, indicating a vote of confidence in our commitment to code compliance and electrical safety. Rather than conducting full inspections, the ESA focuses on targeted evaluations, acknowledging the consistent adherence to electrical safety standards by Hi-Lite Electric Inc.
Clients can rest assured knowing that Hi-Lite Electric’s work is under constant vigilance by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA). ESA diligently monitors our operations to ensure that we consistently meet the stringent requirements outlined in the Authorized Contractor Program criteria.
The Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) stands as the guardian of public safety in Ontario, overseeing and ensuring that electrical installations comply with the requirements of the Ontario Electrical Safety Code. As per this Code, it is mandatory to submit an inspection application to ESA for any electrical installations or wiring carried out in your home or business facility.
Our licensed electricians will visit your home and conduct a full electrical inspection to certify that your living space is electrically safe and up-to-code. Through regular electrical inspections, we can identify and repair faulty wiring, and instantly reduce the risk of fire damage.

At Hi-Lite, we’re big believers in the future of electrical technology and its impact on a better, greener environment. This includes electrical vehicles — the high-tech, eco-friendly future of transportation. But we also know that dependable charging stations are still few and far in between. That’s why our licensed electricians and electric car experts install EV chargers, so it’s easier to make the switch to electric and reduce our collective reliance on fossil fuels.
We install Levels 1, 2, and 3 charging stations in your garage or parking space for 4 to 12 hour charging times based on your needs.

Old wiring and panel systems are one of the leading causes of electrical fires — and one of the most avoidable with regular electrical inspections and upgrades. Your electrical needs change over time, so make sure your home is wired to support modern appliances. Not sure if you require new electrical installations and panel upgrades? You can’t miss these common signs:
Our licensed electricians will walk you through the benefits of modern circuit breaker panels and their safety standards. We will also provide options for different electrical installations and upgrades to match your needs and budget, and ensure that your home is up-to-code, with no fire hazards. Trust us to protect your home with the necessary electrical installations and upgrades to safely support all the appliances you need.
Surge protectors are designed to protect both your home and electronics from damage caused by power surges, spikes, and voltage impulses. It only takes one lightning storm to deliver a high-energy electrical surge and destroy all of your expensive appliances and electronics.
Hi-Lite has designed a Two-Stage Power Surge Protection Plan that helps you fully protect your home and essential appliances:
Our licensed electricians can install these two stages of surge protection to prevent appliance and electronic damage caused by power surges and voltage impulses. Don’t wait for lightning to strike your home — even small; everyday surges can degrade the delicate electronic components in your most valued appliances.
Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are the top health and safety features of every home, and essential fire deterrents. These detectors and alarms do the hard work of protecting you every day, so they need to remain in excellent condition throughout years of use. Our Hi-Lite electricians can replace smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms every 5 to 7 years, and change batteries and inspect sensors as part of your regular home electrical safety check.
How is your home wired? Many residential electrical systems are wired using both aluminum and copper. Aluminum wiring is an older electrical standard commonly found in homes built around the 60s and 70s — like many in Toronto. If your home still has aluminum wiring, you face the threat of losing your home insurance coverage.
Hi-Lite electricians can quickly repair or rejuvenate aluminum wiring according to ESA standards, and conduct a certified inspection for insurance and electrical safety compliance. Our licensed electricians can rejuvenate aluminum wiring by replacing all the receptacles and switches in your home, or replace them completely with copper wiring for long-term fire safety.

While it's common for homeowners to notice electrical issues and consider DIY fixes, it's important to note that electrical work is not suitable for DIY, even for experienced handymen. Electricians undergo years of rigorous training and certification processes to obtain their licenses for a reason. These licenses are more than pieces of paper; they signify the knowledge and skills required to ensure your safety. Electrical work is inherently complex and potentially hazardous. Attempting it without proper qualifications can pose serious risks, making it imperative to hire a licensed electrician to address any electrical issues in your Toronto home.
