Commissionaires buy local security companies

Royal Victoria Security and CoVal Security become part of Canadian Corps of Commissionaires

The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires has bought  Royal Victoria Security and CoVal Security.

Royal Victoria Security was established in 1990 in Victoria. CoVal Security is a Duncan-based company.

The  Commissionaires is a private, not-for-profit company registered under the BC Societies Act, with a mandate to create employment for veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and other public safety organizations.

Commissionaires have served Victoria and Vancouver Island since 1937, and have about 1,000 employees serving communities from Victoria to Whitehorse, Yukon.

“Our business decisions are guided by our commitment to our customers and to veterans, said John Dewar,  CEO Commissionaires Victoria.

“ We strive to provide our customers with the best security services, and we are dedicated to providing our employees with meaningful opportunities for continued service to their communities.  With these acquisitions, we are enhancing our ability to deliver on both obligations.”

Royal Victoria Security and CoVal Security customers will continued to be served by the The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires.
