In October 2012 CANASA launched the Canadian Accredited Security Contractor (CASC) program. The much-anticipated national program is the first industry-regulated program of its kind in Canada and aligns with CANASA’s strategic objective of promoting self-regulation in the electronic security industry. The CASC program was created to meet the needs of the growing electronic security industry in Canada and to enable like-minded security professionals to demonstrate their adherence to industry best practices in the absence of nationwide legislation. The program supports and promotes best practices, integrity, and ethics in the industry and help consumers source accredited security contractor companies (CASC Companies) across Canada. The program is open to all security contractor companies that meet eligibility criteria.
