Losing your Ontario security guard licence can be a stressful and challenging experience. However, you can take steps to regain your licence and return to work.

What are some reasons you could have lost your licence?

  • You did not renew your licence before it expired.
  • You have outstanding fines with the Ministry of Transportation.
  • You were charged with a criminal offence that has not been pardoned.

The first thing you should do is contact the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (MCSCS) and explain the situation. They will be able to provide you with information on what steps you need to take to regain your licence.

In most cases, you must complete additional training or reapply for your license. The MCSCS will provide you with all of the necessary information and forms to complete the process.
Being honest and upfront with potential employers about the situation is also essential. They may work with you to help you regain your licence or find alternative employment options.

While losing your Ontario security guard licence can be a setback, it is not the end of your career. You can regain your licence and continue working in the security industry by taking the appropriate steps and remaining proactive.
