CANASA launches accreditation program
The Canadian Security Association (CANASA) has created the Canadian Accredited Security Contractor (CASC) program in a bid to promote self-regulation of the security industry.
According to CANASA, the CASC program has been designed to elevate accredited security companies to a higher standard of business practices by requiring companies interested in becoming members to agree to comply to a specific set of criteria.
The CASC program will be governed by two groups of volunteers: the Governing Body and the Council. The Governing Body will report directly to the CANASA National Board of Directors and will be responsible for all aspects of the program including strategic direction, finance and appeals. The Council will report to the Governing Body and will develop strategic goals, criteria and standards of the program.
CANASA has invited its members to serve as committee volunteers and send in resumes and applications for a June 1 deadline. Candidates are to be identified by June 15.
