With nearly 4,000 employees, Commissionaires Ottawa is one of the largest private employers based in the National Capital Region.

Today, Commissionaires Ottawa maintains, by far, the highest employee retention rate in the private security industry at 87%—which is good news for clients whose investment in the Commissionaires brand of services ensures they also benefit from a more stable, reliable, loyal and experienced security presence.
