The K-Line Group of Companies Signs Leadership Accord on Gender Diversity

STOUFFVILLE, Ontario--()--The K-Line Group is the first high voltage electrical contracting firm in Canada to sign the Leadership Accord on Gender Diversity for the Electricity Industry initiated by Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC).

As one of the premier Canadian electrical contracting firms, The K-Line Group is quickly establishing itself as an industry leader to promote an inclusive and diverse workforce. The K-Line Group is already proving its commitment to creating a gender inclusive workplace, and has seen an increase in the number of women taking on leadership roles across the organization.

The K-Line Group of Companies has a long-standing history of excellence dating back to 1967, when public utilities first began to see the cost and time benefits associated with outsourcing high voltage projects. A preferred partner then because of its superior work and established safety record, The K-Line Group continues to be an integral partner/service-provider offering clients a complete range of high voltage expertise. Today, as the power industry continues to reinvent itself, The K-Line Group has become increasingly invaluable as a dependable, expert resource for on-time, on-budget, safety –driven power projects.
