imageCommissionaires is Canada's premier security provider, offering a unique combination of integrity, experience and innovation.  We have protected people and property for public and private sector clients from coast to coast for 87 years. In particular, we provide security services to more than 25 Canadian airports.
We are a solid Canadian company more than 20,000 people strong; a well-trained diverse team, of primarily former military and police, of all age groups.  With the highest industry retention rate, our workforce has the stability and experience to anticipate and resolve problems before they occur and we strive to develop collaborative long-term client relationships.
The effectiveness of our experience is multiplied by the fact we are both CGSB 133.1-2008 and ISO 9001:2008 qualified plus we incorporate processes adhering to those standards in every part of our business from service delivery, to training, to customer satisfaction.
Our strength is rooted in our security guarding services, where we emphasize prevention and defusing conflict. We also provide a complete range of related professional services and solutions which involve state of the art technologies in identification, training, and communications.
The Security Services we deliver are designed, implemented, and managed using locale-centric, regional operational management but with a national footprint. This regional operational management approach results in faster response times for any changes in the local security situation.
