Communication is the backbone of any successful organization, be it communicating with their customers and prospects or staff and influencers.

The communications plan for CANASA in 2019 is beginning to take shape and to date, the event lineup is covering a number of important topics.

For example, the Central Ontario Regional Council will be providing insight on the creation of recurring revenue streams at an event in Toronto on March 28. As the industry expands into the security as a service model, members are looking for support in order to understand how to position their businesses, and to increase and sustain their operations.

CANASA’s Central Regional Council is also planning a special presentation on Artificial Intelligence and Security presented by Axis Communications on May 16 in Toronto. Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing security as organizations grapple with the increased pressures to embrace anytime-anywhere accessibility, the mobile workplace and real-time interaction with customers and employees.

Plus, each Regional Council organizes important, informative events in their particular regions throughout the year. Please visit and click “Events” for all the information on upcoming events.

Security Canada 2019 taking shape

Security Canada’s first event of 2019 is just around the corner with the kick-off happening in Laval, Quebec on April 24. Security Canada, with six events across the country, is the leading security trade show and conference program. Attendees can experience the latest in products and services from the leading companies in the industry. For all the dates and locations throughout 2019, please visit

Spring means golf

Speaking of spring, CANASA organizes multiple city golf tournaments throughout the year, organized by the various Regional Councils across Canada. You can visit and click on “Golf” to see the tournament in your area and obtain all the times and details.
