A Tremendous Contract for the Commissionaires

Dear Association Members,

The Commissionaires and retired members of the Force have had a long history of working together in providing a myriad of security services across Canada. 

Additionally the Commissionaires are strong Sponsors of our Association and their contributions help in our program of assistance to our members, most notably our Advocates program.

So we are very pleased to convey the news of their having been chosen to provide security and related services at seven Nova Scotia Power Installations across the province.

Congratulations to both the Commissionaires and the retired members of the Force who are involved.

A press release providing coverage of the event has been issued and follows.

Commissionaires Nova Scotia (CNS) has been selected by Nova Scotia Power Incorporated (NSPI) for the provision of security and related services at seven NSPI locations across the province.

NSPI’s security partner since 2000, CNS was the successful proponent following a Request for Proposals. CNS employs 24 full-time security officers with NSPI providing services that include guarding, alarm response and mobile patrol.
“This contract award tells us that NSPI and Emera are organizations that know the value of a veteran,” said Geoff Hamilton, CEO, CNS. “As Nova Scotia’s largest employer of veterans, it’s validating that NSPI recognizes that a veteran-focused not-for-profit is a natural fit as an integrated security partner.”

“We consider our commissionaires to be part of the team,” said Karen Hutt, President and CEO, NSPI. “Not only do they provide exceptional service but supporting Commissionaires’ social mandate to assist veterans helps us strengthen communities here in our home province.”
