“At G4S we work with you to understand your business goals and design a security program around what you value most.”

Your business is dynamic and constantly changing. We get that. At G4S we also understand that our customers are unique, particularly in the Cannabis industry. You might be a micro-grow operation starting a security program, or maybe you see the need for a customer service-centric program to serve as an extension of your brand in a retail environment. You could be somewhere in between. The key is G4S has the tools and know-how to help you succeed, whatever part of the journey you’re at.

It might be easy to view security as a basic component in achieving Health Canada compliance, or a necessary piece in launching your business. Some get stuck and overlook the role it plays in the future development of their operation and fail to realize the long-term value it can deliver. Setting up a robust security program from the start is important but it doesn’t have to be expensive. At G4S we work with you to understand your business goals and design a security program around what you value most. For some, that might be an emphasis on training, such as CannSell licensing. You might value discretion and are concerned with information leakage, requiring all your guests and visitors to sign in via an auditable visitor management system. More often than not, discussions we have with our customers surface new threats or potential solutions they were unaware of to begin with.

We start every conversation with understanding your resources, the risks you are facing and the potential resolutions available. The future development of these factors is also considered and we work to devise a continuous risk management strategy to help define the total cost of ownership for your security programs. We always review the fundamentals, such as basic policies and protocols. This is one of the easiest and most budget-friendly ways to ensure your program is off to a good start.

If you already have security services in place, we start by analyzing your physical security program and describing creative, pragmatic and responsible efficiencies. We review the delivery of your current services, costs, requirements, value to your business and recommend how to optimize your program — maximizing value without negatively impacting your security risk profile. The data we collect enables us to discuss program adjustments — finding a medium between human and technology resources to balance risk and cost, eliminating waste and achieving efficiency.


Retailers and producers from across Canada have trusted G4S with securing their product and facilities. We evolve with you, adapting the capacity of your security program to align with the demands of your business. We are your physical security experts and a one-stop shop when it comes to security. Our aim is to be a trusted advisor that is serious about your success and delivering programs of value.
