Canadian Security Line-up

  • Counting down to 2010: Wiring up for the Olympics
    Less than a year out, with the security budget finally released, Canadian Security looks at how intrusion detection, CCTV and other technologies are being mapped out as Vancouver prepares to host the world for the Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games.

  • Private security regulatory update
    There is buzz in a number of provinces about further changes to regulations governing the private security industry. Ontario has hired a company to write the exams for security personnel and is seeking consultation from the industry; Alberta has released a detailed discussion paper on what it wants to put in its regulations, and the Justice Institute of British Columbia have introduced a new version of mandatory training in B.C. Canadian Security talks to registrars in several provinces to find out what’s happening across the country.
