90th Anniversary of Serving Canadians

2015 marks Commissionaires’ 90th anniversary of serving Canadians. We are proud to celebrate this milestone and look forward to many exciting years ahead.

The Past

After World War I, Canada’s Governor General proposed the establishment of Commissionaires Canada to provide transition back to civilian life for those who had served and fought in the Canadian military. However, it was not until 1925 that the first offices of Commissionaires were opened in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. It was clear from the start that the exemplary discipline, loyalty and dedication to service that veterans possessed could be put to excellent use in the business world. 

The Present

Today, Commissionaires, a private not-for-profit organization, employs over 20,000 men and women across Canada of all ages and from many walks of life, including but not limited to, former Canadian Forces and RCMP personnel. Commissionaires is continually hiring responsible team members who wish to contribute to the security and well-being of Canadians.

The Future

In the dynamic and fast paced security industry, Commissionaires is focused on providing outstanding security services for our current and prospective clients. With the emergence of more sophisticated security related technology and more specialized, highly skilled staff, we will continue to expand our range of services to more clients across Canada
