To give an accurate price a blueprint would be required

Assuming this is a small 2-3 bedroom bungalow I would say you'd be looking somewhere around $8500 to $9000.

General rule of thumb is $100 for each device (i.e.) light fixture outlet, receptacles, switches etc. Then there's the electric stove, furnace, water tank receptacle, dryer & dishwasher. Electrical service complete with the panel & additional arc fault circuit breakers. This would also include the permits. This does not include light fixtures. This is a basic wiring job.

For the square footage you request, some things you did not mention would be crawl space, garage, basement, out buildings, lighting, etc. Unfortunately unless you provide more detail, you would not get a fixed price that would be accurate for the job. If this building is 500 m off the main road and a new overhead or underground service is required, this could lead up to $20,000 alone.

based on your living space of 1200 sq ft, we also have to anticipate electrical for basement lighting, exterior, mechanical room connections, basic kitchen without island etc. You could look at a price range from $10,000 to $15,000 for basic needs.

Normally electrical contractor can charge $6.00 per square foot excluding light fixtures, pot light installation and electrical service. Pot light will be charge per piece and electrical service will cost $4K for underground service.
