IBEW Local #1003 – the KOOTENAYS  was established in 1947 in Nelson, BC, where our office is located at 101 Baker St. in the Duke Hyslop Labour Center. We represent workers in our region in construction, manufacturing and maintenance, as well as employees of Nelson Hydro, the local Utility.

Members of our local have constructed electrical installations ranging from the Hydro-electric dams on the Kootenay, Columbia and Pend’Orielle rivers to the Elk valley’s coal mines.COE_CS2-NoFrame-480-300x272

Primarily an industrial local, we have also built many of the institutional and commercial projects  throughout the Kootenay Region, and are also active in residential construction.
