Why CSA?

Put your confidence in a leader that has helped shape electrical standards in Canada for decades

We have a long-standing history of developing electrical standards, many of which are referenced in legislation. For over 90 years, we’ve worked with regulators, consumers, manufacturers, and the electrical industry on standards that improve safety and reliability of the electrical system as well as electrical products for consumers and businesses. And, we continue to support improved energy performance and sustainability, including renewable energy through new and updated codes and standards.

We also work with industry associations such as the Canadian Electricity Association, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers Canada, and Electro Federation Canada to ensure our codes and standards continue to address the needs of industry.
