69 years running and the forward momentum continues! Shortly after celebrating their 69th anniversary with Commissionaires, North Saskatchewan Division is stronger than ever, winning the Mobile Patrol contract with the City of Saskatoon performing Alarm Response and Boiler Checks.
North Saskatchewan Division has a longstanding partnership with the City of Saskatoon. In addition to the newly-won contract, the Division recently provided traffic control for the third consecutive year at AG in Motion, the largest agriculture exhibition for progressive farmers in Canada.
It was up to commissionaires to ensure the safety of the thousands of people in attendance from the moment they arrived at the venue. The commissionaires delivered. They successfully directed traffic as over 11,000 people and more than 280 exhibitors travelled to the 320-acre parcel of land. In addition to the massive outdoor space of the event, there was an indoor element to the event that hosted an additional 80 vendors. Successfully navigating the various motor and agricultural vehicles that arrived throughout the event was certainly no small feat, but was no problem for our commissionaires.
It was a successful and fun three-days. Traffic flow was smooth, and everyone and their cars went home unscathed—save a sunburn or two.
