For nearly 75 years, Commissionaires Ottawa has fostered a work culture that is rooted in military tradition and a work force that values dedication, trust, loyalty and honesty. Although hiring from the military community remains a priority, our social mandate has two other commitments. One is to recruit RCMP veterans. The other is to carefully screen and recruit security-conscious citizens who have proven skills and a strong desire to protect the safety and well-being of their fellow Canadians.
By rounding out our ranks with competent, highly trained security professionals of all ages and all walks of life, Commissionaires Ottawa has the resources to meet – and exceed – the unique security requirements of each and every client.
There are other benefits too. For one, clients rely on Commissionaires Ottawa to maintain the lowest turnover rate in the industry, which in turn ensures a consistent, reliable and stable security presence. Our clients also appreciate our commitment to empowering commissionaires with world class training, which ensures they are well-equipped to detect, deter or respond to post-9/11 security risks and threats. We have kept stride with security-related, technological advancements. We have also applauded new laws and standards that better safeguard our communities – and in some cases were even asked to serve as key stakeholders along the way.
While providing first-rate security guards and security escorts for our clients continues to be a proud tradition, we listened to our clients and recently expanded our services to include a comprehensive range of identification, enforcement, training and security solutions. Whether it’s offering digital fingerprinting services, conducting criminal background checks, processing pardon applications, or advancing beyond the highest industry standards, commissionaires continue to raise the bar in the name of protecting our clients’ property, their information and our fellow Canadians.
