How Does the Guard Industry Look?

The Security Services industry in Canada provides guard and patrol services, in-transit cash and valuables protection and investigative services. Industry revenue modestly increased at an annualized rate of 0.4% to $5.4 billion over the five years to 2019, as guard, investigative and other industry services have become increasingly popular among corporate and government services.

In 2019 the security industry generated more than $5 billion in revenue in Canada alone, and saw an increase of more than 2,000 businesses across the country. There are currently more than 95,000 people employed in the security industry moving into 2020.
