Call/Click Before You Dig (Canada)



The recently launched Click Before You Dig website represents Canada’s first national “one-window” approach for requesting the locations of buried utilities prior to ground disturbance.

Click before you dig

Canadian homeowners, contractors, and others submitting a web-based locate request through will receive an e-mail containing a ticket number and a list of utility owners that have been notified on their behalf. A minimum of two full working days is required in advance for all utilities to be located and marked via the process.

Across Canada, there are also numerous telephone-based options to make a locate request, as per the information below.

If you’re planning to dig, for any reason, call your local one-call number or use the Click Before You Dig website first. Either way, local representatives will notify all utilities — including power, phone, gas, cable and pipeline companies — who will mark the location of their underground utilities, free of charge.

Digging with CARE starts with:

C -- Call or Click Before You Dig
A -- Allow required time for marking
R -- Respect and protect the marks
E -- Excavate carefully

Damage prevention is a shared responsibility.
