We have been providing pre-boarding screening services at Canada’s airports since 2004 and are currently the largest provider to the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA). We are certified by the Canadian authorities and adhere to CATSA’s Screening Contractor Management System Standard, which ensures screening providers meet the most stringent qualification, training and performance levels.

As borders become more open and businesses expand beyond their home markets, the safe, efficient and timely movement of people, goods and services will become vital to ensuring national security and a successful economy. We believe that makes our work more important than ever.
