On October 2, 2018, IBEW Canada joined the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) to launch a national campaign calling for federal legislation which would designate July 10th as National Lineworker Appreciation Day. A day that is also significant to the IBEW, as our founder Henry Miller, passed away while on the job working as a linemen back in 1896. Severe weather events from coast to coast to coast have elevated the importance of lineworkers to ensure a steady supply of power to Canadians. This day of recognition is our way of saying “thank you” to all of the workers involved in restoring power safely and efficiently to Canadians across the country.
We can’t wait to see how you celebrated National Lineworker Appreciation Day (NLAD). Please remember to tag IBEW Canada (@ibewca on Facebook and @IBEWCanada on Twitter) when sharing your photos on social media.
