By Veterans, for Veterans—for Canada
Commissionaires is Canada’s largest private sector employer of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and RCMP veterans. It was established in 1925 to help veterans transition to civilian life—a social purpose that has expanded across Canada and today, benefits 22,000 employees of all ages and backgrounds, and generations of families before them.
Commissionaires manages the largest digital fingerprinting infrastructure in Canada, all while growing the diversity of physical, electronic and cyber security employment opportunities to match the skillsets and second career aspirations of modern-day veterans.
NOT for Profit
Commissionaires is Canada’s only national, not-for-profit security organization. To round out its talent and meet demand, Commissionaires also hires family members of active personnel and veterans, as well as civilians who share a passion to protect Canada’s freedom and peaceful way of life.
The not-for-profit structure enables more than 90% of spending to flow back to employees in the form of wages, training, benefits, and employee-centric programs.
In 2022, Commissionaires was recognized with a Veteran Employment Champion Award at a Celebration of Service event on Parliament Hill hosted by Members of Parliament across party lines.
Purpose: Giving Back
Beyond providing meaningful second and third careers, Commissionaires’ social purpose extends to giving back to veterans and their families—such as through donations, sponsorships, national surveys, advocacy and awareness campaigns, veteran task forces, and volunteerism.
Recent beneficiaries of donations in the National Capital Region include:
Why Sponsor Commissionaires Ottawa Open?
