Security Licence Changes - Aug 2011

S/G Licence

The Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services is proposing to increase the term of licence to two years from one year. Many Ontario-based Security Guards find it a hassle to renew their licences each year.

The Ministry is also proposing that individual licenses will expire on the licensee’s date of birth.

These proposals are intended to make the private security licensing process more convenient and efficient for licensees.

If approved, it is likely that this regulatory amendment will come into effect in early 2012.
