about electrical engineering jobs

After civil engineering and mechanical engineering, electrical engineering is the third most in-demand engineering field in Canada, with over 1,800 electrical engineer job openings.

As an electrical engineer, you're responsible for designing, developing, maintaining and testing products and systems powered by or producing electricity. You’re comfortable with a diverse range of technologies. In your work, you frequently deal with electricity, electro-magnetism and electronics, as well as other components involving control systems, telecommunications and signal processing. You may plan and design systems using computer software but you’re also good at designing by hand.

what electrical engineer jobs entail

Electrical engineers usually work in a lab or office environment. Depending on the project you're working on, you may also work in a plant or industrial setting. You likely supervise computer programmers, electricians, or other professionals as a part of your role. Many electrical engineers opt to specialize and work within a sub-discipline such as electronic, microelectronics, signal processing, power, telecommunications and computer engineering.

average electrical engineer salaries

Electrical engineers are in high demand in most major city centres in Canada. Due to the demand, most licensed electrical engineers will be able to command a starting salary in the $70,000 range in most Canadian markets. The one exception is in Quebec. Electrical engineer salaries in Quebec are significantly lower than the national average. This is a pattern we see with many other engineering fields, as well.

With some experience under your belt, your salary can climb over $90,000 in the right markets. Western Canada, in particular, is experiencing an intense demand for skilled electrical engineers, and you'll find high salaries in these areas to match.

where you can work

Electrical engineer jobs are found in a variety of industries and companies including electrical utilities, communications companies, manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment, and consulting firms.

Electrical engineers are in demand all across Canada. The strongest demand for electrical engineers is in Canada's major city centres, particularly those that have strong ties to industries that rely on electronics such as technologies, telecommunications and manufacturing. Cities such as Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton are where your best job prospects lie.
