Last night, we were thrilled to attend Argyle Secondary's graduation ceremony at Queen Elizabeth Theater to hand out the 1st Annual KYBE Electrical Contracting bursary. We created this award after working with Argyle's Co-Op program for the last 3 years and seeing the hard work and dedication each student brings year after year.Read More
Being born & raised in North Vancouver, KYBE Electrical Contracting was quick to jump on the opportunity to work with Craig and Matt Beere on their endeavor to open a premium craft beer brewery in the heart of Lower Lonsdale, Beere Brewing Co.Read More

We were recently invited to Argyle Secondary School in Lynn Valley as presenters for their annual 'Ticket to Your Future' event. We were thrilled to be asked (both of us being from the North Shore and Lynn Valley in particular), and recognize the importance of showing these young adults the options and opportunities that are available to them in our industry.
It was a sold out event with 500 attendees from all North Shore high schools and over 60 presenters consisting of other contractors from the lower mainland as well as educational institutions. We had a great time chatting with the students and their parents about KYBE and our apprenticeship process and requirements. It’s great to see kids show interest in starting out in the same position as Ben and myself did years ago.
There were definitely some future KYBE apprentices & journeyman in attendance.

After months of interviews, presentations and countless votes from our friends, families and valued customers, KYBE Electrical Contracting was awarded with the first ever Best Apprentice Training Award from Small Business BC.
This award means so much to us as our company was built on apprentices that are now becoming full fledged journeyman under our mentorship and training. We would like to thank the apprentice that nominated us, Adam Thomas, for his great words and extra hours he put in to help us with our presentation as well as all of our other employees as we couldn't have done it without them.
This will hopefully be the first of many awards for our company as we continue to lead our industry in apprentice training.

We are so honoured to be featured in this weekend's Vancouver Sun in the Business BC section. This article highlights our dedication to apprentice training and how our company is striving to lead our industry in this particular field. The path of an apprentice going from being completely green to a certified Journeyman Electrician is one we gladly take on and we want to continue to foster and mentor these apprentices and give them the best training to become the best trades people they can be.
