New CEO appointed for Commissionaires South Saskatchewan

Regina, SK – The Chair of the Board of Commissionaires South Saskatchewan, LCol (Ret’d) Keith Prior thanks Monique Goffinet Miller for her service to the Commissionaires as Chief Executive Officer of the Division since 2022. Monique’s strong leadership has seen many positive shifts happen in the Corps, the growth and diversifications of the non-profit’s partnerships in Saskatchewan and has been instrumental in representing South Saskatchewan at a National level.

“I have proudly represented the over 600 commissionaires working throughout our communities to help keep us safe and secure. I am very optimistic about the future opportunities for this organization and the important work it will continue as the only non-profit security organization in North America.” Goffinet Miller said. “One of the current recruitment campaigns is “Commissionaires hires military and RCMP spouses” and, as a spouse, moving is a part of life. With my family’s RCMP transfer to Ottawa in early 2024, I remain dedicated to finding new, meaningful ways to serve our veterans and current members of the Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP.”

Goffinet Miller has served with the Corps since 2018, first as a Board Member and then as CEO since 2022. Monique’s previous experience as the CEO of the Provincial Capital Commission afforded Commissionaires South Saskatchewan a business and government relations acumen that served the organization exceptionally. Additionally, as a former broadcaster and business owner, Monique brought both an ease to public relations and partnerships.

“Our Board thanks Monique for her strong, empathetic and forward-thinking leadership that has allowed our organization to sophisticate our practices, policies and strategic vision. Her work has simultaneously led to stability and growth.” said Commissionaires South Saskatchewan Chair Keith Prior. “Monique’s leadership style fostered an engaged and informed executive team that, the Board has no doubt, will keep the Division on course for bigger and better things.”

The Board of Governors is excited to announce the appointment of Dean Rae to the role of CEO as of March 2024. Dean Rae has served 34 years with the Regina Police Service and has held the role of Deputy Chief since 2014. Notably, Rae has served as interim Chief of Police from August to December of this year. Rae has held several roles with Regina police, including service in patrol, criminal investigations, watch command, north district administration, criminal investigation administration and executive office.

“I am honoured to be selected as the incoming CEO for the Commissionaires, South Saskatchewan Division. Throughout my policing career, I have taken great pride to develop strong leadership, management and communication skills that will provide a solid foundation to lead the Corps.” says Rae. As “I begin this new role, I look forward to meeting all staff and clients to listen and learn about the intricacies and challenges of the organization.”

“I, along with the Board’s Executive, look forward to working closely with Dean Rae. We individually and collectively, together with the full board, hold him the highest regard. Welcome Dean!” says Chair Keith Prior.
