Badges are prohibited for security guards in Ontario as are Forage caps, stripes on pants (other than reflective safety stripe - silver) and rank insignia (chevrons). Cannot have black/navy uniform shirt. Pretty much anything that suggests authority or remotely resembling police.

Yes they are so worried people may think its police coming from far away and they may stop criminal activity(being sarcastic). If your working closely with people the government must think people can not read SECURITY on every side of the guard.

I am pleased they have decent regulations in Alberta.

Just a follow up regarding the Alberta badge and regulations. You can not wear it on a chain around your neck or display it on your uniform in any way. It must be in a wallet type holder with the badge on one side and your security license on the other side.
