Digital editions of some books are also available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac.

Local Focus

Electrical Code Simplified is not a general wiring guide. These books show you what specific standards are required by your inspector, in your province.


Complete instructions for whole house wiring in simple, easy to understand language. The books feature a large number of illustrations.

Conflicts Identified

Official rules sometimes overlap and regulations can be vague. These books draw together overlapping rules to make practical application easy. Electrical Code Simplified is never vague.
