Why should I start a career in security?

The Canadian private security services industry has grown significantly over the past 20 years. From 2004 to 2015, there has been a 282% increase in Security Worker licenses issued, proving the crucial role that private security plays in Canadian society. Projected to maintain growth over the next 10 years, security professionals have a distinct role from police or corrections officers, but play an essential role in helping maintain public safety in cases of non-emergency public crisis. Whether building your resume to become one of the few selected into the highly competitive Canadian Police program, being part of a high-paying industry that contributes to the well-being and protection of public safety, or pursuing a career that challenges you to become better, all are good reasons to become a security professional today.

Can I work without a Security Worker’s License?

All individuals interested in a career in security services are required by law to complete Basic Security Training to be eligible for a Security Worker’s License. Working without a Security License is considered a provincial offense and will result in a fine to the unlicensed worker.
