On this November 11, Remembrance Day, GardaWorld honours the implication of veterans in our nation. This day marks the anniversary of the armistice agreement that ended the World War I in 1918.

Our veterans are admired for their integrity and vigilance, two very important values in our organization. Their leadership and team spirit contribute to the professionalism and strength of our team, and to the growth of GardaWorld.

Our implication, in partnership with the Military Employment Transition Program, facilitates the transition of Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans who are seeking to find jobs in the civilian workforce. GardaWorld values the training and the expertise of the veterans by setting up a program that integrates and facilitates the inclusion and the respect of the veterans within our workforce. The objective is to allow them to bloom in a professional way and to act as mentors for the personnel joining our organization.

The Remembrance Day symbol is represented by the red poppy that grew in the battlefields during World War I. Today, millions of Canadians, including some of our veterans and employees, wear with pride this emblem during this special week.

Today, we take the time to dedicate a tribute to these individuals and to warmly thank them for investing their experience and expertise in the security industry. We are particularly proud and grateful to count them among us.

On this Memorial Day, let’s warmly thank our veterans!
