Quebec Considers Regulation for Security Industry
QUEBEC CITY, Quebec, Canada
A bill before the Quebec National Assembly would set
regulations for private security companies, including
monitoring and electric security companies in the Canadian
province of Quebec. Bill 88, introduced on Dec. 15, is
expected to be debated and voted on by the national
assembly in the coming months.
Bill 88 would set up the Private Security Bureau, which
would regulate alarm companies and monitoring firms, as
well as guard service, life safety, goods and sites
protection, investigation, locksmiths, armored car services
and security consultant services.
In a press release, the Quebec chapter of the Canadian
Security Association (CANASA) says it is “pleased” with the
draft legislation and says that a public/private
partnership will help “enhance the security of the
citizens.” The chapter plans to release a new memorandum as
an answer to Bill 88 in the next month.
