HOW TO APPLY FOR A SECURITY LICENCE

At Registry @ South Trail Crossing Ltd., we understand the urgency of receiving your security licence. We process applications the same day and provide a temporary licence that allows you to start working immediately, while the physical licence is mailed within 60 days.

Visit the Government of Alberta website for more information about specific requirements for each type of security licence, or read our blog covering the steps to apply for a security licence.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The following security licences are valid for two years. Please note the prices below do not include the $9 service charge when you apply in-person.

  • Security licence: $100

  • Locksmith licence: $160

  • Investigator licence: $160

 

These security licences are portable, which means your licence is still valid if you change employers or work for multiple employers.

WHEN CAN YOU RENEW YOUR SECURITY LICENCE?

To ensure your security licence remains valid and uninterrupted, you can renew it as early as 60 days before the expiry date. If your security licence is expired for more than three months, you must complete a first application. We're here to assist you with the renewal process, making it a hassle-free experience.
