Is a Job as a Security Professional

Right for You?

Security professionals in Canada have to train and be licensed. That's why it's so important to first know whether a job as a security professional is right for you and to find the right place to receive your initial security training, and your on going training. Contact us at

The work of a security professional is similar to the work of a police officer. Their role is to protect people, property and information. However, security professionals are not member's of a police service. They are hired to provide security in addition to what police already offer.

The variety of roles is part of what makes the job of a security professional interesting. With the right training, you can find the right job in the security industry for you.

From 2017 - 2026, the Government of Canada expects there will be:

  •  47,400 new security professional job openings
  •  45,500 potential job seekers in this carrier.

Jobs for the security industry grow and existing security professionals retire. This means there is never a bad time to enroll in security guard training. Companies often need security services even more during an economic downturn. That means a job as a security professional can offer stable employment even as the economy shifts.  

 There are now more than 140,000 private security professionals licensed in Canada and only about 70,000 active police officers. Compared to the growing population, the number of police officers is actually decreasing, according to Statistics Canada.

These figures are raising alarms among some experts, will argue that more careful oversight of the security industry is necessary as citizens increasingly come into contact with private security, even in areas that appear to be public spaces.

Policing experts from across the country and some form over seas are meeting in Ottawa to discuss ways to make policing and community safety more affordable. Private security us expected to be apart of the discussion. Private security sector can be a useful way to help .  ' I think as people realize what is available from the private security sector it will become more sophisticated.'

A new report prepared for Public Safety Canada find exponential growth in the Private Security Industry. Now is  a great time to consider this industry as a carrier choice.
