The National Assembly of Quebec passed the Private Security Act which came fully into force on July 22, 2010. This new Act represents a major reform of the private security industry and follows a long period of reflection and exchange between the people of the private security industry and the Ministère de la sécurité publique (MSP). The new Act replaces the Act Respecting Detective or Security Agencies which dated from 1962. It requires that any individual who carries on private security activities in Quebec, must now hold an agent licence. It also requires that any person who operates a business providing one or more private security activity must hold an agency licence of the appropriate class for the activities offered. The Private Security Act applies to six distinct class of private security activities, which are: security guarding, investigation, locksmith work, electronic security systems, transport of valuables and security consulting.Product page
The construction industry is a major sector in Quebec, generating some $30 billion in investments every year. The hundreds of thousands of people involved in the industry, and the companies that employ them, must be constantly on the move throughout the province. This economic activity requires the contribution of many individuals and companies, including architects, engineers, suppliers of materials, workers, and contractors. Together, they form the teams that build bridges, houses, schools, factories, and businesses.
The Quebec construction industry has adopted criteria for hiring workers to which construction companies must conform. The fundamental principle is competency, acquired through training and/or on-the-job experience. To demonstrate their competency and to work in the construction industry falling under the Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training, and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry (Act R-20), all the iMotion technicians hold a competency certificate.
The Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST) is the organization to which the Government of Québec has entrusted the administration of the occupational health and safety plan. For this purpose, the CSST sees to the application of the following two Acts:
the Act respecting occupational health and safety, the purpose of which is to eliminate at the source dangers to the health, safety and physical well-being of workers;
the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases, the purpose of which is to compensate for work-related injuries and their consequences for workers, as well as the collection, from employers, of the sums necessary to fund the plan.
iMotion Security holds a certificate of compliance from the CSST.
