Security Services: Canada

This report forecasts to 2026 security services revenue in nominal US dollars in Canada. Total demand is segmented by service in terms of: guard; alarm monitoring; cash-in-transit and related services; systems integration; and other services such as consulting, private investigation, and pre-employment screening. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: commercial and industrial, residential, and government and institutional.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2011 to 2021; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2011, 2016, and 2021.

Excluded from the scope of this report are: public safety personnel (e.g., police officers, public corrections officers, federal agents, and firefighters); in-house, proprietary security services, such as guards, detectives, and off-duty police officers on the paid staff of (non-security) business establishments; military-style private security providers (sometimes called mercenaries); equipment installation services (aside from systems integration); locksmith activities; security products distribution and sales; and private correctional facility management.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2021.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
