What Our Clients Say
“The full day course served as a really great introduction to some of the scenarios that our staff could encounter in their day-to-day duties. The instructor’s background as a paramedic led to him presenting some real-life examples, instead of simply reading through textbook cases. He was able to tailor the material to the needs of our staff. And his presentation style was very engaging. The facilities themselves were top-notch as well, with kitchen facilities and ample parking available for participants.”

“Please let me take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for the outstanding support to the
Canadian Forces (CF) during the 2010 Olympic Games. Your commissionaire personnel assisted in
protecting the Department’s infrastructure, assets and CF members as part of the Force Protection
security team. Members from your British Columbia division, assisted by dozens of experienced
commissionaires from various Canadian provinces, deployed to isolated posts in the Vancouver and
Whistler area in support of our mandate to meet security requirements, in some cases for a period of
six months.” Read more

"I just wanted to thank you for the fast response you provided over the past week pertaining to our

"The City of Fredericton (Parking Services Division) has had a contract for On-street Parking
Enforcement Services with the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires since May 2003. Based
on the success we had had with them in the past, we expanded their work to include
enforcement services for our two parking garages in September 2009. I find that the people that
are sent to work with us are dependable, hard-working, 'salt of the earth' types of people. The
work they do is not always well received, but I find that I can count on them to come to work
every day and be pleasant and professional no matter what kind of weather or what kind of people
they face. I have seen them go out of their way to help our parking customers and our parking staff.
They are a wonderful fit for us."
-- Janice Legace, Parking Services Manager, City of Fredericton

"Commissionaires are not only responsible for the collection of tolls; they are the
“uniformed ambassadors” for the company. These men and women are not limited
to toll collections but are challenged daily with requests to provide motorists with
directions, distances, locations and weather/road reports to name a few. The
Commissionaires rise to this challenge. A typical day on the job has, on occasion,
included assistance with minor repairs and other advice." - Read more
