History of Securiguard
Securiguard secured its first contract in 1974 in the mining town of Cassiar, acting as an extension of management focusing on customer service. Our original trade name was World Investigation, Security Division. We soon expanded further into the mining industry and opened up in Vancouver in 1977 re-branded as Securiguard.
Securiguard has successfully partnered with many Indigenous communities across Canada through the establishment of formal agreements.
We believe that by building strong relationships with Indigenous communities, we can create positive change and make a difference in the lives of those we serve. Our joint venture partnerships are based on mutual respect, trust, environmental stewardship, and social responsibility. We aim to provide opportunities for local training, employment, and contracting in each indigenous community.
To enhance our hiring practices, we also have implemented an Indigenous Employment & Training Program (IETP) which is coordinated by a dedicated Indigenous Employment & Training Coordinator. Our Coordinator proactively engages with local Indigenous communities with respect to our employment and training opportunities, coordinates Basic Security Training (BST) courses in local areas for Indigenous Peoples, and sponsors the cost of the Security Workers License.
