Company history

Our Story

Wadden Electric began in 2013 as a part-time undertaking for owner, Jonathan Wadden. By 2017, we had established ourselves in the community and grown into a full-service electrical contracting company. We proudly served Halifax Regional Municipality from day one, and have since expanded our services into surrounding areas.

At Wadden Electric, quality and integrity are at the heart of everything we do. We specialize in residential & commercial electrical work, and offer a broad range of services including: small repairs, upgrades, renovations, new construction, solar, and home automation. We take pride in a job well-done, and value the relationships we build with customers and project partners. 

Our electricians are insured and licensed, and stay current on all electrical codes and safe work practices. They are committed to providing the highest level of service, and known for their professionalism and strong attention to detail. The Wadden Electric team represents the best in the industry, and is the backbone of our company. 

The feedback from our customers has reinforced Wadden Electric’s mission to provide a service based in quality, integrity and professionalism. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received over the years, and proud to be a member of the Halifax business community. We look forward to serving our customers and partners for many years to come.

What Makes Us Your Top Choice

The Wadden Electric team takes pride in delivering exceptional service our customers can rely on. You, the customer, is why we do what we do. Our years of experience giving our customers a service centered on quality, integrity and professionalism, is why we come highly recommended.


“Refreshing and relieving are the two words that come to mind when we think about working with Wadden Electric. Having trades on our projects that are self-motived to be organized internally is a big deal to us. It really lightens the load of our site supers and project managers to not have to micromanage every deliverable… A great example of this is the fact that Wadden’s electrical foremen all come to the project site with a tablet of some kind that they can receive project updates on and work alongside us in real time…”

“We used Wadden Electric for all our electrical work in our basement renovation (including electric heater installation) and we could not be happier. Communication was incredibly easy, they were able to accommodate our renovation schedule to allow things to move, the work was excellent, and the team members that were at our house, lead by Jonathan were kind, quality people. They were a pleasure to work with, to have in our home, and are the company we will continue to use in the future.”

The guys were on time as promised, very professional, work done was excellent and very neat, which I like. Have used this company for years now and will continue to use and recommend them for sure.
