Canada’s Number 1 Trusted Security Firm

Founded in 1994, The Iron Horse Security is a “people first” company that, through our team of qualified professionals, has a mission to provide our clients the highest caliber of security, investigative and training services available.

Growing from just two employees in 1994 to employing over 1400 team members now annually, Iron Horse Security is not just bricks and mortar, uniforms and signs – it’s people working together to serve our clients, the general public and each other. With offices in Toronto, Ottawa, and Gatineau, we have proven that our people are the key to our industry leading success. Our amazing growth can be directly attributed to the quality and dedication of our employees, and as a result we have been equally able to deliver a premium value to our clients.

That is our philosophy. And while our Company today hardly resembles the first small one room office, our early values remain with us. One of the main foundations of this philosophy is that our people make the difference. This belief carries over into everything we do.

Awards and Recognition

Our award winning business practices have gained national recognition by Profit Magazine when four years in a row we have won a position in their coveted, nationally ranked Profit 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada. Additionally we have been selected as finalist by the Greater Chamber of Commerce for both Business of the Year and Mid-Market Business of the Year in their Business Achievement Awards category. Along with these awards, our company President has won the “40 Under Forty” Award for business excellence amongst the top 40 business owners under 40 years of age, declared a finalist in the Government of Ontario’s Premieres Award, and for the past two years in a row the illustrious Consumers Choice Award. No other security company in Canada has won these industry leading awards.

To ensure we are providing our valued clientele the highest quality of services available, we restrict our focus to the following three main areas of service: Security Services, Investigative Services, and the Security & Investigation Academy.
