How to become a security guard in Ontario: Secure your new career with Regal Security today

The security guard sector right now is booming for a host of reasons: businesses and organizations realize the increased need for safety and security with rising crime rates, and let’s also not forget about regulatory and compliance requirements for certain industries, including healthcare, that have specific needs for ongoing security measures.

Additionally, the security guard sector is growing with urbanization and population growth, expansion of businesses and new developments, including commercial and residential, and growth in the private sector as companies are increasingly realizing the value of having dedicated security personnel to protect their assets, employees, and reputation.

What Steps Are Involved in Becoming a Security Guard?

To become a security guard in Ontario you need to follow a specific process and meet certain requirements.

These requirements include:

Be at least 18 years old.
Be eligible to work in Canada.
Have a clean criminal record through a background check.
Complete a training program that covers a variety of topics, including legal aspects, ethics, emergency response, and more.

Once you have completed these steps and training, then you will receive a Training Completion Number. And once your background check is cleared, you will be eligible to take the Provincial Exam for security guards. If you pass the exam and meet all requirements, you will be issued a Security Guard License.

With your license in hand, you can start applying for security guard jobs in Ontario.
