Additional Information


In British Columbia, businesses and individuals (workers) offering security services must hold a valid security licence as per the terms of the Security Services Act (2007). The Registrar, Security Services issues each approved applicant a licence that outlines the conditions of the licence, the types of security services the business or individual may provide and special authorizations such as the use of dogs and restraints while performing security duties.

For the total number of security worker and security business licences issued, the totals may be less than the sum of the column due to licences holding multiple categories.
