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.
