About Commissionaires

More than 78 years of experience in protecting people and property

The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, established in 1925 is a Federation of 15 independent not-for-profit companies.  Since then, our mandate has been to provide meaningful employment opportunities to former members of the Canadian Forces, the RCMP and others who wish to contribute to the security of Canada. A thriving, self-sustaining business with revenues exceeding $500 million per annum, the Corps of Commissionaires is proud to deliver 94% of its revenues back to its employees both veteran and non-veteran.

Established in 1939 Commissionaires Northern Alberta Division continues to deliver integrated security solutions to Northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

The Commissionaires entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of National Defence in 2010 to provide meaningful employment opportunities to injured or ill Canadian Forces members who are either returning to duty, or who are transitioning to civilian life following their service careers as part of a re-integration process.

However, the Commissionaires’ vision isn’t solely restricted to serving veterans. It is our belief that the training, skills, and discipline our retired military and police veterans have combined with our non-veterans offer diverse and experienced security solutions. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Commissionaires, or if you are interested in engaging Commissionaire services, contact us today for more information at 780-451-1974.
