Our social responsibility programs are designed to optimize operational efficiency, improve risk management, and ensure everyone at CCI Canadian Circuit follows the guidelines issued by provincial and federal government to conduct our manufacturing process at the highest level of safety.
People - Employee Health and Safety
At CCI Canadian Circuits, we are committed to the safety of our employees and communities around us. We follow all the protocols to ensure that our employees have safe and healthy environment to work.
Environment - Recycle, Air Pollution Control, Chemical Treatment and Discharge
We follow strict rules to implement risk management when it comes to the air pollution, recycling and chemical treatment and discharge from our manufacturing facility. We have taken several preventive steps to ensure that our manufacturing facility is safe for our employees and visitors.
We have implemented a recycling program to ensure and residual chemicals and metal resultant of manufacturing process are responsibly recycled. We dispose of non-recyclable materials according to the local municipal guidelines. Scrap metal, steel, aluminium, copper, tin, nickel, solder and stainless steel, are sold to a scrap metal dealer and end up being melted down.
To ensure safe and clean working environment for our employees and neighbouring businesses we monitor the air discharge from the plant and adjust our processes as required to stay in compliance with the Ministry of Environment regulations.
Chemical Treatment Discharge:
We have setup a process to ensure the all the chemicals generated as a result of PCB manufacturing are handled in the most efficient manner to minimize risk of any chemical pollution. We separate our chemical waste into several streams.
Highly concentrated and toxic chemical wastes go directly to Sumas for disposal. Less concentrated wastes are concentrated through a special, custom built evaporation system and go to Sumas for disposal or resale. The balance of our waste stream is monitored to be sure that it is in compliance with local regulations and discharged to drain.
We maintain a constant dialog with our local regulatory community and that we have trained our staff on the moral as well the legal requirements of waste disposal and we strive to reduce the amount of waste that goes through every stream, in order to keep our environmental impacts as low as possible.

CCI Canadian Circuits takes great pride in investing towards the support and development programs for our youth who are the future of our society. We are proud to be associated various local educational institutes for their co-op programs. We partner with many educational institutions such as UBC, SFU, UFV, BCIT and KPU to name a few and offer co-op programs to the post secondary students studying in the field of electronics, mechatronics, and various engineering streams. We feel proud of providing the youth with a platform where they can start working with their creative minds on exciting new projects or implementing their academic knowledge in a practical manner. We are strongly committed to continue building great relationships with many post secondary institutions in this regard. We also hire co-op students to give them a head start in the industry.
