The fall is always a busy and exciting time for CANASA, and this year is no different! Here’s what’s happening over the coming months:

Security Canada Update

We’ve wrapped up the first five shows of Security Canada held in Laval, Que., Ottawa, Edmonton, Richmond, B.C. and Moncton, N.B.

Security Canada Central, the largest security show in the country held in Toronto on Oct. 23 and 24, is shaping up to be another successful gathering as we build on the attendance and exhibit increase from 2018.

The big show kicks off with our annual keynote address, this year presented by the Toronto Police Guns and Gangs unit. This important gathering promises to be an extraordinary and timely event, considering the current situation and initiatives that have been put into place over the last few months.

Along with the keynote, there are a number of free educational sessions that provide visitors with the opportunity to learn from the experts in their respective fields. Topics such as CCTV camera usage, perimeter security trends and managing corporate security programs are just a few of the highlights. Be sure to visit www.securitycanada.com/attend/central for all the details.

These educational sessions are free with registration and run over the two days of the show. So if you haven’t registered yet, we urge you to do so by visiting www.securitycanada.com to see all the information on this important security show.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see and experience hands-on the latest in security products and technologies on offer from the leading manufacturers and suppliers in Canada.

Here are some of the comments from previous attendees:

• “Hope to continue to attend, I like what it had to offer.”

• “The one show you have to attend if you want to keep up with what’s new and important in the industry.”

• “Keep up the great work. I attend every year and wouldn’t miss it!”

Monitoring Station Symposium Update

CANASA is offering a special two-day Monitoring Station Symposium in Toronto on Oct. 21 and 22 which will include a tour of the LANVAC monitoring station and panel discussion which will explore changes in standards, the future of monitoring and how to attract and keep key talent. This important event requires registration, so please visit www.canasa.org for all the information.
