Goderich Electric Ltd wants to remind you to only purchase and install CSA approved Christmas lights this season.

Other electrical products have not been through product testing and can cause extra risk to your home and loved ones. Recognize the labels with the links at the bottom of this page. Don’t take the chance!

Be safe this holiday season with these other tips:

  • Check strand cords and extension cords for damage or fraying. Only use outdoor rated cords and  be sure to use (and not cut off) the grounding prong on the plug. Keep cords away from areas where someone could trip.
  • Do not overload your circuits and make sure outdoor receptacles are GFCI protected.
  • Keep your ladder away from nearby power lines and be sure to place the ladder on a secure footing.

Once you have decorated your home please enter our Christmas Light Contest by submitting a picture to our Facebook page. Official rules below.

We Wish you a SAFE and Merry Christmas!
