These occupations are listed under the Security Service and Investigators Act and include:
- security guard
- loss prevention
- security alarm responder
- executive protection
- patrol dog handler
- private investigator
- automotive lock bypass worker
Participating registry agents can process both new applications and renewals. This includes a $9 service fee charged on top of normal licensing fees.
After you receive your temporary licence, a permanent licence will be mailed to you within 60 days.
To get a temporary licence through a registry you must:
- be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
