July 10th marks National Lineworker Appreciation Day. A day when we honour the men and women across Canada who brave difficult and hazardous conditions from snowstorms to tornadoes to wildfires to keep the power flowing in your community. They are the highly trained men and women who preserve complex electricity grids across cities, provinces and territories. Often faced with working in extreme conditions, lineworkers are trained to work efficiently, safely and collaboratively to keep the lights on.
Every day, lineworkers across Canada work to keep electricity flowing into our homes
Lineworkers are the highly trained men and women who work on installing and maintaining the complex hydro grid across cities and provinces. Often faced with working in extreme circumstances, lineworkers are trained to work efficiently, safely and collaboratively to keep the lights on across Canada.
“Thank you to MP Daniel Blaikie for tabling an important petition in the House of Commons on behalf of lineworkers across Canada. We encourage the government to honour the brave men and women who maintain power for all Canadians by recognizing July 10th every year as National Lineworker Appreciation Day.”
– Francis Bradley, President and CEO, Canadian Electricity Association –
These are the brave men and women who have been providing us the power behind essential services in our community.
