The Security Canada event calendar kicks off April 25 in Laval, Que., with stops in Ottawa, Edmonton, Richmond, B.C., Moncton and culminating with Canada’s largest show in Toronto this October.

Steve Basnett, Director, Trade Shows & Events, says that as “cyber and physical security challenges continue to increase, it is important that the Security Canada shows provide security providers with the tools and skills needed to protect businesses and individuals.

“Innovations within perimeter security, access control, video surveillance and alarm security will be highlighted at all of our shows in 2018. Attendees can expect to see a whole host of exhibitors showcasing products and services offering solutions for their customers’ requirements. The educational program is designed to explore how products and services can assess and mitigate security risks from the experts in their respective fields.”

CANASA initiatives update


Patrick Straw, Executive Director, CANASA, recently updated the initiatives being championed by CANASA for 2018.

“CANASA will be focusing on a number of educational opportunities this year and we have been successful in securing excellent keynote speakers for Moncton, Ottawa and Toronto focusing on cyber security, forensic video analysis and how the new cannabis laws will affect our member companies. We are working on additional speakers for the other shows. In addition, CANASA continues to work with the Canadian Professional Sales Association (CPSA) in developing a security sales program. We expect a first draft of this completed by the end of February.

“The CANASA National Scholarship Program is open for submissions until May 1, 2018. Valued at $1,000, the scholarship is open to dependents of individuals that are employees of a CANASA member. Visit www.canasa.org for all the details.

“We are continuing to expand our member events in the various regions and encourage all of our members to reach out to their local chapter and get involved. I would urge you to visit www.canasa.org for the complete list of events and golf activities.”
