As ESFI-Canada defined its 2014 strategic direction it focussed on addressing a significant gap in electrical safety. Existing data on electrical fires and documented concerns regarding electrical wiring in Canadian homes moved us to focus on encouraging homeowners to Check Behind the Wall. However, we wanted to gather consistent and current data gaps from across Canada that would help us understand homeowner behaviour and concerns associated with electrical system maintenance and upgrades. In early February we worked with Leger to gather insights from homeowners who completed a home renovation in 2013 or were planning one in 2014. Attention was given to ensuring participation by a diverse population of homeowners across 10 provinces.
