Security Licence Regulations

All individuals in the security field, including security guards, patrol, in-house security, bar security (bouncers) etc. must be licenced by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, The Private Security and Investigative Services Branch.

For new licence form or licence renewal form, please visit the Ministry of Community Safety & Correctional Services.

New License Application

Licence + fax fee is $85.00

Licence is valid for 2 years

For individuals who wish to apply for a security licence,  Stinson Security will aid in the process for a $35 fee.  This fee includes taking the passport photo, photo verification signature, checking the form to ensure everything is correctly completed, forwarding the forms to the Ministry.

NOTE:  This fee is in addition to the $80 sent by an individual to the Ministry for licence processing.  The assistance from Stinson Security in this matter does not ensure that an individual will be hired by the Company.

Once you have completed Basic Training, written and passed the Ministry test, you may then apply for a licence.  Please see the above Ministry link for direction on how to complete the application.
