Our reputation is built on our team of 1,800 dedicated professionals from varied backgrounds, including Regular and Reserve Force members, ex-police, students, seniors and other responsible citizens of all ages.

At Commissionaires, our mandate is to find meaningful and challenging work for former members of the military and law enforcement. We offer our Commissionaires career opportunities well beyond static guarding, that include private investigations, consulting, mobile patrols, and a wide variety of services for many levels of skill and physical ability.

Whether you’re looking for a job as a stepping stone from your military service or a long-term career, we offer full-time, part-time or casual employment. Commissionaires has a veteran-friendly culture 90 years in the making with a “military family” environment that you’re used to. We offer training, development and advancement, as well as the stability and pride that comes from working for an organization that has been around since 1925.


Our reputation extends the ethos common within military culture – integrity, honesty, service excellence and pride.

We provide challenging and meaningful employment opportunities with benefits, competitive salaries and flexibility in hours, with positions ranging from full-time, part-time and casual employment. We believe in creating a work environment that respects our team of professionals, and provides opportunities for enriching skills and encouraging our team to achieve their personal goals.

Our security professionals are offered a total rewards package that exceeds industry standards, aligned with our business strategy to be the “Employer of First Choice”. We advocate on behalf of our Commissionaires to provide competitive wages, comprehensive benefits, and a dedicated employee assistance program, and will often go that extra mile with our vendors to negotiate additional incentives that benefit our Commissionaires.

For many who join, Commissionaires provides a valuable foundation for pursuing a career in law enforcement. Resources are trained in a variety of courses ranging from use of force protocol, first aid, CPR, to leadership and customer service management. Our Commissionaires put that training into practice each day as they deal with complex situations across the various clients we serve. Indeed, the foundation we provide is second to none and will equip you with the skills and experience as you pursue a career in law enforcement.  

Others join simply to share the camaraderie of fellow veterans and former law enforcement professionals in their retirement years.  Today, for those who have entered their retirement years, that sense of connection with fellow veterans and law enforcement professionals is still a driving force for many to join our ranks.

Commissionaires often provides meaningful employment for those who have decided to call Canada home.  We strive to pay wages that exceed industry averages.
