About Us


Since 1937, Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, Southern Alberta, has safeguarded and served the communities and neighborhoods we call home. As with most businesses, we started small.

From those humble beginnings, we quickly grew to become Canada’s premier security provider. Today, we employ over 1800 security professionals in four locations throughout Southern Alberta: Calgary, Red Deer, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat.  The contact details for these offices are below.

The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires was originally created to employ Canadian veterans after World War I. Their leadership and skills are the cornerstone of our success.  We currently employ over 500 Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP veterans whose values of loyalty, dedication to service and professionalism are shared with all our employees to ensure the highest possible quality of service to our clients.
