How to Become a Security Guard in New Brunswick

In some ways, becoming a Security Guard in New Brunswick is similar to a lot of other Canadian provinces. You'll need to meet basic license requirements such as age, language proficiency, and other usual requirements of this nature.


However, there are a few big differences regarding New Brunswick security licensing:

  • Most provinces require you to take a security licensing course, New Brunswick does NOT.

  • You need to be employed by a NB security company to obtain a Security Guard license.

In New Brunswick, the government body that controls a NB Security Guard's license is the Department of Justice and Public Safety.


Once you submit the proof of your ability to meet the requirements and NB security company employment to the Department of Justice and Public Safety, you will get your New Brunswick Security Guard license.
